But how do you make the most of such a market and choose well? Here are #CareerMovesGroup's ideas on how to make the most of this #CandidateLed market. ​​1​​Cash in on more than salary ​​​​​It can be tempting to play the field make a career decision based on an extra 5% or 10% in terms of salary, but it may pay well (excuse the pun) to think a little more long-term. This is a great time to take a moment to pause, reflect and make a conscious choice on where you want your next #CareerMove to take you. Look at the long-term perspectives of the role and of the company. Is there room for growth? Do they invest in their people? Will they help you to get to the next stage of your career? ​​​​​​​​​2​​Look to widen your impact​​One of the many things that have changed post-pandemic is the increased focus on recruiter roles that are not just delivery focussed but offer the opportunity to have a wider impact such as improving culture or employee well-being. Are you interested in driving company diversity and inclusion efforts? Do you have a passion for training and development? Or perhaps you’re interested in data? Take a moment to decide what kind of mission will make you want to get up in the morning and look for the roles that will allow you to dive deeper into issues that are close to your heart. ​​​​​​​​​3​​Re-orient towards fulfilment ​​Have you always wanted to work for an iconic entertainment brand? Or maybe you’ve been itching to work for an innovative tech start up with a strong culture? From the big tech four to top music brands and scaling start-ups, the demand for recruiters is happening at scale and across sectors. As it continues to be more difficult to attract talent, organisations may be more will to look for talent in non-traditional places, such as outside of their industry or within the retired worker population. Now is the time to make that industry change you’ve been thinking about or to re-orient towards brands that resonate with our personal values.​​​
