Here in the Rytons office, we’re big fans of the beautiful game and as we look forward to seeing how the January transfers in our favorite footie teams get on this season, it got us thinking about the changes taking place on the jobs market too.



With Christmas approaching, you may be starting to wind down and look forward to some time off from the daily grind. And if you’re not happy in your current job role, it might be that a new year’s resolution to change career is on the cards once 2017 rolls around.
Often people wait until the freshness of a new year to make decisions about where their lives are going and this is why the job market gets busy at around this time. Many take up the mantra of ‘new year, new you’ and use it to make positive changes, both in their personal and professional lives.
But, if you’re looking to step up a league professionally, why wait until the new season to start trying? In the coming year, the construction industry is going to be busier than ever. And as such, companies are already crying out for skilled workers to undertake the vast range of roles needed to make it a success.
So, if a career change is in the offing why not make the most of the transfer window that is wide open already and get ahead of the game by starting now?
There are plenty of opportunities within construction for skilled workers to become a part of this thriving industry. From Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors, to Site Managers and board directors, we work with a network of clients and candidates from all disciplines, which include Planning, Design, Technical, Commercial, Construction, Finance and Sales & Marketing.
If, however, the thought of applying for new roles is maybe too much this side of Christmas, how about getting yourself match fit and ready, for when you do start? Here are some of the things you could do in between the festivities over the next few weeks.
• Brush up on your skills and smarten up your CV.
• Decide what area you would like to work in most and where your skills lie.
• Are there areas where you have downplayed yourself to the National League, when really you should be playing at Premiership level? Make the most of your best sides.
• Put a plan of action in place in advance to get ready to sell yourself in the best possible light.

If a team transfer is on the cards for you, why put off until tomorrow what you could be doing today? Whether you’re ready to start applying for jobs, or need to get yourself match fit to ensure you blow those interviewers away when the job hunting starts, ensure you get ahead of the game now and give yourself the best possible chance of success.
