Blink and it is gone!

This is undoubtedly the busiest time of the year for the search community. Our clients rightly want to see assignments done and dusted before the summer break, but we are now hitting the point where recruitment projects are going live now but will be concluded in late August or into September, or even October. No complaint at this end however, and we are delighted to be working on such a diverse range of assignments currently.

That said, like the clients and the candidates we work with, we are looking forward to the opportunity to recharge batteries and down tools for a well-earned week or two in the sunshine. This is also a chance for you to take stock career-wise and ask yourself a few fundamental questions:

-Am I enjoying my current role? What is important to me…remuneration/development/fulfilment?

-Will it get me where I ultimately want to be? If not, what is the next logical career move?

-Have I been in it too long now? Should I sit tight for another year or two? Have I achieved what I wanted to do with it?

-Should I now be considering taking on a non-executive role alongside the day-job?

As head-hunters specialising in the HE sector, we work with many senior leaders who can be equally clients or candidates over time. We really value these relationships as they are mutually beneficial. We are in a unique position to be a source of advice based on current insights and market knowledge to both. If you feel you would benefit from getting to know us too, please get in touch.

Happy holidays!
