PP Newsletter | July 2019

Once again we've experienced an interesting month when it comes to recruitment and reminded that the things that motivate some people, are unimportant for others. Not all firms are for everyone and we understand that people want different things out of their job.

We pride ourselves in our ability to stop and listen to what it is that you want in a new job rather than just bombard you with job details that don't tick the boxes. We strive to be so much more than recruiters; we're consultants, brokers, advisors and yes, sometimes counsellors! Positioned to help you navigate the minefields of changing jobs.

Be clear on your motivations. What are the non-negotiables, where is the flexibility? When you're ready to have a conversation then we're here to help.

But we're not magicians! If only we could pull that dream job out of a hat, life would be so much simpler for all of us! As firms become clearer with what they want, have a think, what motivates you at work every day?
