Candidates

Finding the Right Job

It’s time to explore your next career move. 

Deciding the time is right to search for a new job can be both exciting and daunting. Knowing how to find the role that’s right for you can feel like an overwhelming task. 

Self-Appraisal 

Before you begin searching for your next role, take some time to assess what you’ve learnt in your current and previous roles. Start by identifying your strengths and weaknesses. Consider any transferrable skills that may be of interest to a potential employer.

Assessing and evaluating your skills and abilities in this way will better help you identify where you see yourself in your next role.

Register with a Consultancy

Registering with a recruitment consultancy is the best way to get started on your job search. Seek a consultancy that is a well-established, has a good reputation and proven experience of placing candidates in your sector. Ask your consultant about the current job market in your sector, salary expectations and ask for regular job alerts that fit your requirements. 

It can be a good idea to register with multiple consultancies, however caution is advised. Registering with too many agencies may jeopardise your chances of getting a role if your CV is sent to the same company by several consultants. 

Network

When it comes to finding a job, your network is an invaluable resource. LinkedIn is a great platform to reach out to and expand your network. A referral is one of the best ways to be introduced to a potential employer, and the old adage ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ really rings true. 

Stay Updated

When searching for a job, it’s more important than ever to stay up-to-date with what’s happening in your sector. Demonstrating awareness and knowledge of matters that are relevant to your industry will come across extremely well in your interview, so do your research and read sector specific trade press. Staying abreast of industry news will also keep you updated with market intelligence around who is recruiting, expanding or changing roles.
