If you’re considering a new job in 2020, why not help others whilst also taking your next career step?
If you instruct HD Surveyors in December 2019 we will help you take your next career step and donate 10% of our fee to a charity of your choice.
OK, so there is more than one reason why leaving the comfort of your warm home to traipse in to the office could fill you with dread, but there is possibly one thing that could change it all.
I spend a lot of time talking to Surveyors about what is important for them in a job offer, the answers can be quite surprising. Money is a necessity but more money is rarely top of the list and rather than healthcare or pension options, it is often the smaller things that make their workplace a happy one.
Your next career step is always the biggest so far, yet many leave it to fate or luck without looking at all the options. You might apply to a job you’ve seen advertised or hand your CV to a recruiter but if you don’t take a strategic approach to finding your next job you risk ending up in the wrong role, sending you career in the wrong direction.
Don’t shoot the messenger but this Thursday see the start of December! I know… Where has the year gone? The office Christmas party was booked back in September and company planning for the New Year is well and truly underway, that includes recruitment. Brexit is still an unknown but the panic is over and employers are seeing growth and realising that it’s time to crack on.
With a number of clients tasking me with finding Quantity Surveyors with experience in BIM, I have been pondering how it can work for Quantity Surveyors. Causeway Technologies is one software company that keeps coming up, so I approached Tim Cook, Causeway’s Global Sales Manager, who was more than happy to be our first guest blogger!
I am often contacted by trainee and graduate Building Surveyors and Quantity Surveyors who are looking for their first job. Some are looking for part time roles whilst studying, whilst others have graduated and are looking for their first full time job. Many find this first step the hardest and with every employer looking for some level of experience they often turn to us for help. Unfortunately we are not often able to help as our clients generally have highly specific requirements for candidates with specific areas of experience. Even though I can’t help directly, I always like to support with advice.
So, here it is. It’s not rocket science but I am told that it has helped in the past so it could help you.
