650,000 people into self employment since 2009. Fantastic but caution? Plse RT

Very interesting interview on Radio 4 this morning.

Apparently 650,000 people have entered self employment since 2009.

Great! Fantastic!

…but also time for caution?

One fifth of that number is estimated to have moved into self employment because of where they live, i.e. they had no choice because their local labour market was so poor.

Plus the tale of a unemployed lady on an into work placement program. Her back to work advisor discovered she liked to make gloves in her spare time – so it was suggested she went into business making and selling gloves. Two months later she’d sold one pair.

Hardly the next Facebook is it?

…makes you think? Is the future of work all about short term freelancing/project driven work? If so, how will that affect a person’s ability to own a home, build a sensible pension pot? etc etc.

Words to the wise – ‘old skool work is dead & you have no choice’ – please RT

….the old arrangement that we’d like to believe in — get a good education at a good school, find a good job at a good company, work hard for many years, and be rewarded with a secure financial future — is dead. Trading conformity for loyalty is no longer an option. Therefore, we are all free agents now, whether we want to be or not.

Those words, in my humble opinion, are the most powerful words you’ll read this year.

See below link for full article:


As a recruiter I get those words – I ‘see’ it everyday & have done for several years.

The pace of change in the current world of work is breath taking – its even accelerating. Yup, the 1960’s ‘social contract’ of working 45-50 years at British Gas and then getting a pension, gold watch, warm handshakes all round and a pat on the back when you retire, yup dead as a dodo. Gone – ceases to exist. Never coming back.

…but knowing this and deeply understanding & accepting it is very powerful – knowing the game means you can play the game better.

Playing the game means being better at ‘career management’, e.g. knowing the job you do currently will directly affect the jobs you can do in the future, how to write a killer CV, ‘playing’ your social media profiles, building your ‘career community’, how to ace an interview, how to play agents, etc etc.

Being better at career management means having & working with someone on your side, i.e. a coach, an aide.

So from now on I am no longer just an IT recruiter – I am also a career management coach and I’ll show you how to play the game better.
