Changing Jobs

The average working Brit changes jobs every three to five years. To a lesser or greater degree, any transition involves an evaluation of where your career is at, and where you want to take it next. Are you planning to use the same skills in a different role, transfer to a new team, up sticks to another employer, or do something completely different? Read on for advice and information about changing jobs, whether your career needs a minor tweak or a major overhaul.
