Liverpool workers least
fussed about promotions
NEW research from the UK's leading
independent job board, CV Library, has found that Liverpool's workers are not
as ambitious in their careers as originally predicted, with 41.3% willing to
stay at a company for 5 years or more, without a promotion.
The study, which asked 1,200 UK workers about their attitudes towards promotions
and job titles, found that a whopping 97.8% of Liverpudlians stated that they
expect to get promoted at random points during their employment, depending on
Other key findings
► 30.4% have moved companies in order to secure a promotion elsewhere.
► 37% said that they would be more likely to take a job that had the
word:- 'manager' in the title.
► 62.5% do believe that job titles are important.
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library comments:- "It's
clear that many workers in Liverpool are happy to move forward in their
employment without a promotion and this isn't necessarily a bad thing! Working
hard doesn't always have to result in a change in your job title, but as long as
you're being rewarded for your hard work in other ways, such as pay rises, extra
perks or more holiday days, then that's the most important factor."
When asked what was most important to them when looking for a job, workers in
Liverpool stated that salary was the number 1 factor (34.8%), followed by
daily responsibilities (32.6%), the company they're working for (21.7%) and the
location of the job (8.7%).
Less important, but still a factor that they
consider was the added perks that the company offers (2.2%).
Biggins continues:- "We all have different priorities in the workplace and
a promotion isn't always 1 of them! Money continues to be a key driver for
workers in Liverpool and can often be a deciding factor in whether to move jobs
or not. What's more, the actual job in question is extremely important and you
do actually have to like what you're doing! If you're looking to move forward in
your career, try and note down your priorities; both in terms of financials and
your own development."
