SMEs beware; up to 20% of Australian workers seeking a career change this year

Today, recruitment expert and Group Managing Director Mark Smith from leading recruitment company people2people is predicting that the “Great Resignation” will still happen in Australia, but may be delayed. A 2022 online poll of Australian workers by them has revealed over 40% are looking to change jobs or make a career change, a 3% increase from pre-Christmas results.

“The Omicron variant has certainly thrown another spanner in the works for employers and employees alike over the past two months. The fast-paced spread of the virus coupled with close contacts all in isolation has not only caused staff shortages, but uncertainty. We have seen an increase of over 40% in requests for temp staff across all industries,

“For those who spent the summer break reconsidering their career path, now is the time to get your CV in order. With such a high percentage of workers indicating they plan on resigning or making a career change, your first impression through your CV will become even more important,” says Smith.

Between 10 and 20% of Australians also indicated that they are looking for a career change in 2022 according to people2people’s online poll.
