Finlay James | Blog | What to Look for in an Employer

 Heading into the new year with a job hunt? Making sure the role is right for you is just as important as making sure the employer is a match. 2020 has taught us many lessons and having an employer that cares is such an important factor right now. Make sure you keep an eye on the following when searching for your next employer...

 

Growth Potential. 

Opportunities for progression and promotion are vital for your next employer. Whether it's smaller steps to bigger pay scales or promotion into managerial positions, making sure the opportunities are available in the organisation can help you plan towards achieving your long-term career objectives. 

 

Flexibility and Work-life Balance. 

Employers must be transparent when it comes to what they expect from their employees. A strong work-life balance is key to long standing employment, and if an employer struggles to accommodate you, it's more than likely not going to last. 

 

Security and Stability. 

After such a difficult year in 2020, most people want a secure and stable employer. Now, this isn't always guaranteed, but there are a few signs to read before committing to an employer. How is the industry weathering? Is the company growing? How does historical data say so? What is the staff turnover like? Feel free to ask about the careers of employees already at the company.
