Bid Recruitment Experts
This report mirrors findings in the Bid Solutions 2015 salary survey in which 52% of respondents had been in their current role for less than 2 years. Only 27% of respondents had been in their current role for more than 4 years. This confirms a very high staff turnover within the profession. Very few people are seemingly promoted or change roles within a company and surprisingly 48% of all respondents had changed organisations within the last 2 years.
The Standard Life report also showed that career progression is most important to those under the age of 34 while salary becomes less important past the age of 50.
One in five employees is said to have already started their job search, taking advantage of the many new opportunities this busy period has to offer.
