So, are you thinking about doing something different?
With the government’s Job Retention Scheme (‘furlough’) coming to an end at the end of September 2021, employers across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent may need to make staffing changes. Is now the time for you to make a career change, even if you’re not ‘at risk. Maybe you’re ready for a change?
Despite many businesses struggling, the pandemic has brought about huge growth in sectors across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, such as digital and creative technologies, health and social care, the green economy, construction and transportation, manufacturing and logistics, and there are thousands of opportunities.
