Posted on 18 January 2023

When looking for a new job, it’s important you find a role that suits your personality and your career goals. Here are our top 5 factors you should consider when searching for your next position.

1. Company Culture

 The working environment will have a significant impact on your job satisfaction. In the interview ask if the working environment is relaxed or formal, how often social events are held, and if the company supports any charitable organizations.

2. The team

Your co-workers will have a huge influence on the work environment. It’s a great idea to try and meet potential colleagues, alternatively ask about the team’s passion. You will look forward to work each day if the team is happy and passionate about what they do.

3. Opportunities for growth

Look for a company that supports the growth of its people. Ask employers about career progression and professional development – can they offer training courses or qualifications?

4. Location

Consider the length of commute with which you are comfortable. How will your time on the road affect your non-work life, including family time and fitness activities. Would working locally provide a better work-life balance?

5. Benefits

Salary is a huge part of a company’s offering, however, always consider the other benefits. Identify things like the holiday allowance, commission structure, pension, and rewards.
