What is your motivation to move jobs?

8/10/2013 by

You have been at your role for what you feel is a sensible amount of time so why should you move? You like your colleagues, you have a pleasant journey to work and you are paid a fair and justified amount.

So what could be the main motivators to make an individual consider changing roles? Below we list a few instigators that we at Montash have found the majority of candidates have as their motivators to consider moving roles.

A new environment
Sometimes by moving to a new organisation you can have new opportunities. Some companies will always bring in ‘new blood’ at a particular level within an organisation.

An increase in salary
By switching roles an individual can usually demand a higher package or rate.

The ability of career progression
Usually candidates can achieve a bigger career ‘jump’ by moving organisations rather than by staying in their existing company and awaiting internal promotion.

Building of your own network
We all know networking is key, and by moving companies, you gain the opportunity to grow your own network, especially if you ensure you connect with colleagues on LinkedIn which will help your online visibility.

Different sector experience
By gaining different sector experience you build a more rounded CV which is favourable.

A new challenge
Eventually everyone needs a new challenge and something to make them want to get out of bed to do. There is nothing worse than being stuck in a rut.

Better reporting lines
Occasionally you can find that you may not get on as well with one particular line manager as another. This could end up being a large motivator for some individuals.

Personal Commitments
You may want to relocate to be nearer family, you may want to work for a particular type of organisation, or even a specific company.

Can you think of any other motivators for individuals? Which do you think is the biggest motivator for candidates?

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise. Rather than waiting until 2020, voters will now be casting their ballots in a matter of weeks. The hope for the government is that a Tory victory give the prime minister a strong mandate in parliament as Brexit negotiations begin. This sudden decision has been embraced by many in the recruitment industry due to the anticipated st...
