Ambitious staff set to change jobs in coming year
More than 40 per cent of the UK workforce plans to change jobs within the next year.
According to a survey by recruitment website Totaljobs.com, almost a quarter cite career advancement as their main reason for leaving their current job.
Keith Robinson, commercial director for Totaljobs.com, said: "The results reveal that the UK workforce no longer believes in the concept of 'a job for life'."
Surprisingly, it isn't salary and flexi-time that is keeping workers motivated in their jobs. Just 2 per cent cited work-life balance benefits such as flexi-time as a motivating factor in their job.
Today's workers are more interested in the variety and challenge of the role (46 per cent) and promotional and career advancement opportunities (20 per cent).
