Majority to search for new jobs in 2004

Nearly
75 per cent of people are likely to look for a new job in the next 12 months,
according to new research.

The
independent study, carried out by research company TRBI on behalf of Manpower,
asked respondents about their intentions for the next 12 months.

Key
findings show that:

·
73 per cent are likely to look for a new job

·
76 per cent will look for a permanent job

·
54 per cent of those who have worked as temps, did so while looking for
permanent work.

Charles
Ashworth, chief operating officer for Manpower, said:  "These findings suggest that it is becoming increasingly
common for people to change jobs on a regular basis, and that people expect to
have more than one career in their lifetime – something that can be very
appealing."
