Finding The Right Job

It happens. You feel undervalued, underestimated, perhaps underpaid. It's time for something that gets you raring to go in the morning and brings you home at the end of the day feeling like a champ.

Finding a new job is pretty straight forward. Though, finding the right job takes a little more thought and a spot of soul searching.

So before you hit the internet like a job-hunting tornado, take a moment (grab a coffee, if you fancy one), and get yourself clear on what it is you're actually looking for.

What Gets You Up In The Morning?

REWARD

The BackScratcher

Goal-oriented types are driven by limitless reward. The harder you work, the more you're rewarded. This could be financially, through incentives, discounts, travel or good old recognition.

You'll scratch the back out of your career in order to get the most out of it in return.

You might suit a role within a fast-paced sales environment where performance-related bonuses keep you on your toes, or working within retail management where you'll be responsible for the success of your own store.

PEOPLE

The Networker

If you have a passion for people and just love working as part of a team, you'll want to ensure that your next move is into one of close-knit culture and vibrant surroundings.

Consider a role within the creative sector, where brainstorms, group idea churning and team projects are a part of everyday life.

If the customer is your focus, retail may just be the next step for you. Many leading retail brands we work with are looking for store managers, customer-centric leaders and retail team builders.

DEVELOPMENT

The Apprentice

You have a thirst for learning, and are certainly not the type to settle into a humdrum day job.

Your desire to constantly grow your own skillset and develop on your own back makes you a great candidate for retail management, where opportunities for progression are available in all directions.

Love problem-solving? Digital marketing is a great place to be right now.

Those with the drive to develop themselves open up opportunities to move into a wide variety of sectors, as well as more technical roles.

CHALLENGE

The Adventurer

Your get-up-and-go is driven by something to get your teeth stuck into. A team project, a problem to solve, a campaign to bring alive or a solution to put into practice.

Challenge-lovers make great sales executives. It takes a certain tenacity, an attitude that just won't quit and the ability to work at a fast pace, in a high-pressure environment.

If a challenge is what you thrive on, a career in sales could be the one for you.
