words by Victoria Henderson, Senior Recruitment Consultant at CHASE
New Year, new job? That could be a good idea, but equally don't be led just by the changing of the calendar! Our best advice, at whatever time of the year, is to start by reflecting on how you'd like to move forward. Speak to those who you trust and who know you the best. Spend time thinking about it - be honest with yourself! Talking this through with a variety of people will be a massive help, and it may lead you to decide that you're okay where you are.
However, if you decide that pastures new are for you, speak to an experienced and knowledgeable recruiter and work with them to craft a plan to find you something different. Whatever your situation there will be something for you to consider. Your consultant will ensure that your CV is fit for purpose and will provide full support and guidance as you progress through the selection process.
Nothing's ever perfect, but if you feel positively about working in pharma or healthcare and just need to freshen things up, you're unlikely to regret giving new things a go and working hard to be a success.
