Learning professionals on the lookout for new roles, survey claims
This year will see a staggering amount of learning professionals look for a new job, a new survey has claimed.
Research from learning recruitment specialist Blue Eskimo has shown that an astonishing 62.38 per cent of learning professionals want to change jobs in the next 12 months, up from 58.85 per cent last year.
Nick Bate, director at Blue Eskimo, says part of this change could be down to a lack of pay rises in certain sectors.
"As you'd expect, quite a few people - around a quarter - are after more money. Almost 60 per cent of people didn't get a rise this year, and many of those didn't get a rise last year, either."
It's not all about money, though - 24.92 per cent want a more interesting role, 16.29 per cent want better career prospects and 12.38 per cent want a better work-life balance.
"People are still broadly happy in this industry - 66.13 per cent say that they are happy and 31.43 per cent say that working in the learning industry is OK. Even those who don't want to move jobs do want to see some change - around a third want more money and better benefits and almost 20 per cent want to work for a company with a better strategy," Bate added.
