Recruiters – should you be moving now?

Recruiters, is it wise to consider moving companies is this current market climate?

Recruiters, should you be moving now? It’s a question I encounter frequently, especially given that many companies have been experiencing a slightly sluggish market. Your career is a huge aspect of your life, and considering the right time to transition is a crucial decision.

In my extensive experience, the opportune moment to leave a role is when the position that aligns with your career goals is readily available. So YES 100% move now if you find what you are looking for. We at GSR2R are working with several clients that are growing and hiring today, continuing to offer excellent careers and packages.

As recruiters, we often rely on our intuition to make decisions around our career, that gut feeling that something is right. However, in the current market scenario, I am advising recruiters to think a little more.

In all markets I would strongly advise conducting due diligence before making any decisions. It’s not just about the lure of a new opportunity but ensuring that the move is strategic and beneficial for your long-term career growth.

Here are two things I would consider helping guide your decision-making process:

  1. Questioning: Don’t hesitate to ask probing questions during interviews or discussions with potential employers. Seek clarity on their business strategies, growth plans, and how they navigate challenges. A transparent conversation will provide valuable insights into the company’s ethos and prospects.
  2. Evidence: While the allure of a promising opportunity is enticing, seek concrete evidence to substantiate the promises made by prospective employers. Look for tangible examples of success, growth stories, and employee satisfaction within the organisation.

Move your career on anytime, just ensure you go to the right role.

Feel free to share your thoughts or reach out for any further personalised advice. Your career journey is a significant part of your life, and making informed decisions is key to ensuring its success.
