It appears that the concept of a 'job for life' is no more. Today Brits are more likely to be 'job hoppers' moving from post to post to gain variety and boost their careers.
New research conducted by job site Indeed has revealed that 98.1% of Brits are no longer in the same job that they were in five years ago. Changing attitudes – that continue to shy away from the traditional ‘job for life’ - are partially responsible for this job-switching nature. However, the study found that these hasty job changes are deemed normal nowadays. The study, which surveyed more than 1,200 employees and jobseekers found that just 23% of jobseekers think that short-lived jobs could harm their career, while 40% of under-35s feel that short-term employment is actually boosting their careers.
