You’re searching for your next job. Reviewing jobs boards on your lunch break. Applying for the jobs which sound exciting at “that moment in time”.
But what if, instead of “settling” for what was on the jobs board that day, there was a way to identify a job you would love EVERYDAY?
Our tips to create a refined search and find a job you’ll love:
1. Your Skills - Radiators and Drains
If you haven’t heard this before….radiators give you energy, and drains….well…..drain it! Apply that to your job hunt:
List your daily paid and unpaid jobs. Which do you love? Can you find those in a job?
For example....You love organising social events, you’re the sports team captain, and enjoy training juniors in your day job. A job which is people-focused may a great match!
Output: When jobseeking, be sure to question if the job will bring you fulfilment.
2. Your experience
You have “the perfect cv” but not quite making the cut for interviews….
Be ambitious, but honest, about your skillset - if you’re currently entry level, the chance of becoming a Director next, is unlikely. So, spending hours on “the perfect cv” might not always cut it! Instead speak to someone already doing your dream job, ask for mentorship and skills development.
Output: CVs are not the only way to explore career options. Get your name out there by speaking to companies. Remember to be honest about your experience and goals.
3. Your values and ethos
Have you ever felt like the job “just wasn’t for you”? Or you “didn’t fit in”? It may have been due to a clash in personal values.
Research companies you want to work for. What do they stand for? What’s their vision and values? Are they who you thought? If not, it may not be the right move for your career.
Output: Investigate companies and find ones you will flourish in. A company which has the same ethos and values is likely to help you achieve more in your career!

What we do
Bringing Dignity through jobs
We believe that jobs people love bring great dignity. And dignity comes from a good paying, secure job, where the person fits into the ethos of the team.
We aim to match people to jobs they love, because when a person loves their job, they rave about it. Oh, and they are also more reliable, more productive and stay longer.
