Half the UK’s line managers are looking for a new job, new research has revealed.
A detailed survey of 479 managers by research firm Roffey Park found that 47% were considering a career move.
Three in 10 managers are looking at moving to another organisation, 12% within their current organisation and 5% to become self-employed.
Career development was the most common reason given for considering a change, closely followed by lack of job security and not feeling valued.
The more junior the manager, and the less successful their organisation, the more likely they are to be looking at changing jobs.
One respondent said they were considering a move because: “The organisational culture and environment is becoming more controlling than may be available elsewhere.”
