The Fear of Moving Onwards and Upwards!

Looking for a new role can be a daunting thought, especially if you’ve been at a company for so long you find yourself “comfortable”. You know how the coffee machine works, you’re used to the commute and everyone knows you and you’re basically part of the furniture. That doesn’t always mean you’re happy though.  

We’ve all been there, you don’t hate work (or maybe you do), but you don’t love it either. You’re overlooked for development or promotions because you’ve been there SO long you must just be happy where you are. If you’re thinking to yourself “yes that sounds familiar” it’s time for a change. And we will help you.  

Everyone deserves to be in a workplace where they are valued, respected and given opportunities to develop. It’s a big reason we don’t work with a number of hotels in the hospitality industry. Not every hotel can support developing employees and they may not have the ethos of promoting within. That’s up to them, but that’s not how we like to work.  

Our candidates come to us because we find them the roles they love. A role that aligns with their passion. So if you are looking to climb the ladder, or perhaps enhance your skills then we can find the hotel that will support you in doing so – whether it be in the kitchen, front of house, back of house, management etc.  

We understand the fear of moving from somewhere you’re not entirely happy with. “It’s okay”, “I know what to expect”, “I’ll move on eventually” - we hear it all the time. Wouldn’t you like to be saying “I’m excited”, “I actually look forward to work” and “I’m finally being recognised and valued”. The jump into the unknown is daunting, but with Icognia you know we’ve fully vetted each and every hotel we represent. We’d love to hear from you and what you want out of your career, we can help make it come true!
