What to look for in an employer

Posted on November 21, 2017 at 2:42 pm

Often you may think that it’s the employee that needs to sell themselves in the recruitment process, but employers should also take some time to showcase what they are about and what their company stands for.

As an employee, it is important to work for a company that you believe in and that shares some of the same values as you do. A job should be about more than just the hours you put in, it should be a working relationship that can be built upon over the months / years.

You need to consider if not only you fit in with the culture of the company but also that it fits in with you. If you do not like the ethos of the business and the way it is run, you probably will not enjoy the job either.

Consider the people you are going to be working with – regardless of whether it’s an apprenticeship or a full-time job, you’re going to be spending a lot of time with your new co-workers so it’s important to make sure that they’re people you’d like to work with and that you could get along with.
