Don’t be afraid to move jobs

In the accountancy field, it’s common for employees to stay at a firm for a very long time – often though they feel it’s time to move. Although loyalty is to be commended, it shouldn’t be a detrimental decision for your career progression – sometimes it’s time to move on, guilt-free.

When is it time to move?

Some recruitment companies would have you believe it’s when you don’t want to go to work on a Monday – the trouble is, who likes Mondays anyway? If you’ve had a wonderful weekend, it’s not your job; it’s probably the thought of having to engage your brain again. At Public Practice Recruitment Ltd, we think it’s time to move jobs when:

  • You have lots of ideas that could take a business forward and skills that aren’t being fully used.
  • You have seen tremendous success with a project and would like to help another business to do the same.
  • You have gained extra qualifications, but after waiting, there is no immediate career progression possible.
  • You would like to take on extra responsibility and lead a team.
  • You are not enjoying your role and feel it’s time to try something new or a different business.

Next steps
