7 good reasons for leaving a job

Are you thinking about leaving your job but not sure if it’s the right decision? Take a look at these 7 reasons for leaving your current job to help you decide.

1. Decline in the company’s success. 

If your business has seen a decline in performance, has lost clients or has started to make employees redundant, it may be time to begin your job search

2. Team or company restructure

When companies decide to restructure it can affect the dynamics in your team or change your responsibilities entirely. A possible consequence of this could be that you no longer enjoy your job as your duties may be completely different to when you first took on the role. When you’re faced with a company restructure, it may be time to seek a new job.

3. Career development 

Staying in one company for a long period of time can make you feel like your career isn’t progressing at the rate you want it to. Sometimes moving to a bigger company with higher budgets and more prospects for professional growth could help to develop your career much quicker.

4. Different work culture

A company’s work culture plays a big part in your overall happiness within a particular job and not every environment is the right fit for every employee. You might be amazing at your job, and the company could be offering incredible benefits. However, if the culture doesn’t align with your values then ultimately you won't be fully happy there and it could be time for a change.

5. Better salary

Money is not the only aspect of being happy in your job, however, it is important to feel valued and that you’re being paid in line with industry standards. If you’ve asked your current employer for a pay rise and your requirements aren’t being met, it may be time to find a new company that can pay you what you’re worth. 

6. A change in leadership 

In many cases, more often than not, employees just don’t gel well with their managers. If you don’t get on well with the person who is directly managing you it can lead to a lack of motivation and can affect your day-to-day workload. If you’re currently going through this in your job, it’s probably time to see what else there is out there. 

7. Personal circumstances

Each individual will have completely different circumstances when it comes to personal life and circumstances. Many companies offer flexibility to meet different needs and if your current employer isn’t offering this, it could be time to move on to somewhere new that can offer the support you need.
