Appetite for change
People with real talent have accepted roles they are too big for. Others daren’t move on because they know they wouldn’t get the same salary in a new role. Some are trapped by the need for flexible hours or a short commute. Many plan an early escape when the economy picks up. In the short term, these reluctant prisoners may be right to stay where they are.
In the current market many are anxious just to stay in work; but others are chomping at the bit to move on. There is an appetite for change, but a shortage of jobs to change to. And many of us forget to look in our own back yard before casting our net more widely.
