Trinity Scott offers a complimentary career health check to assess your true worth in the market, whether or not you are thinking about moving from your current role. That way, you can benchmark other opportunities against your current employment.
‘To move or not to move? That is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of the outrageous current employer… or by opposing, resign from them’ William Fakespear
Sometimes it’s just a question of discovering what else is out there. We are constantly surprised by experienced researchers who do not know their true value and the sheer vastness of opportunity out there for them.
So that you can consider all of your options in the round, we offer you incisive and impartial advice based on our knowledge of today’s market. Our aim is to become your life-long careers advisory partner, collaborating with you throughout your career as a researcher so that you are constantly maximising your potential and realising your true value.
What’s my Market Rate?
While we all know it’s not a good idea to move for money alone, it might be reassuring to know that, in this economy, your earnings will usually increase by at least 10% when you make a move.
We would be happy to talk you through various career options and discuss how you can maximise your value as a researcher. We have a grasp of your value wherever you are in the world.
The Inhouse Option
At certain stages in your career, moving inhouse can be an exciting possibility.
Over the last few years, there has been a surge of corporates bolstering their talent management functions, gradually upgrading their low-level ‘CV shifters’ with experienced researchers: quite often attracting them directly from search firms.
If you would like to explore this avenue, please contact us. Please note that we do not always advertise these opportunities, but we have access to them through various partners.
Become a Freelancer
Setting yourself up as a freelancer is not as difficult as you might think.
It’s partly about weighing up the lack of a regular salary versus the flexibility that being self-employed provides.
The challenge of suddenly being responsible for your own business development can be underestimated. It’s sometimes possible, though, to sustain enough business by forging close relationships with only three or four clients, be they search firms or corporates.
We would be happy to give you our views on the advantages and pitfalls of setting yourself up as a freelancer, and will even put you in contact with those we know that have done so successfully.
