Find some guidance on a tricky subject, plus exciting opportunities at Ico Design, It’s Nice That and more.

20 January 2023

Leaving your job – it’s a topic that is often fraught with guilt and anxiety. So this week, we’re revisiting a guide offering some help.

“The decision to leave your job is about your personal preferences as much as your professional development,” says Sarah Trounce in the guide. “You might be looking for more responsibility or flexibility, higher pay or better benefits, or just a change of scene. Whatever your reason, you’re taking control of the fact that your current job no longer works for you on some level, and you’re moving on.⁠”

“Always remember any place of work is a business first, and a social group second. So don’t get hung-up on feelings of guilt or betrayal. If you’ve been clear, honest and helpful throughout the leaving process, your manager will likely remember this about you in the future and the relationship you have built together will stay the course.”
