Senior staff yearn to go it alone

A
new survey has revealed that over three-quarters of the UK workforce wants to
‘break free’ from their jobs and go it alone.

The
research, from HR consultancy Chiumento, found that almost a quarter (23 per
cent) of senior managers questioned claim they hope to become self-employed in
2004, compared with the national workforce average of just 5 per cent.

Workers
who have been in their job for less than 12 months are the keenest to quit (67
per cent), compared with 24 per cent of people with four years experience.

Within
actual job functions, those in strategy and creative roles are particularly
keen to set up on their own.
