In order to progress in your career it is important to keep learning. You may have opportunities in the workplace that keep you up to date with current trends and standards, but if you want to get a promotion or move to a higher paid role you may need to seek out specific courses and qualifications. There are now a range of flexible courses online that you can complete at your own time and pace that could strengthen your skill set and set you apart from others.
With things like mental health, work/life balance, flexible working, holidays, sabbaticals and 4 day weeks in the news now more than ever, the tide is turning in favour of employee satisfaction. Is it time for you to give your career a health check? Would more flexibility offer you a better work-life balance? Wellbeing is key to a long and happy career and companies are tuning in to this.
If you’ve got this far, then it probably means you have a clear idea of where you want your career to go and the things you want to achieve. Now it’s time to take action by putting together a 2020 vision plan. Jot down you career values and goals in clear format to give you direction. Having 2020 career vision will help you achieve your goals and objectives.
If you would like further support in finding the right role our consultants at Selective Recruitment Group are on hand to help you identify your career goals and are always happy to offer advice and support.

You can watch recent progress here:
A sporty convertible. A leather jacket. A dodgy toupée.
All the above are seemingly required to enter mid-life in crisis mode. For those lucky enough, debuting a more mature lifestyle can be done with a higher level of class: a golf club membership. Tennis club memberships are also acceptable for those on a budget.
Jokes aside, golf is actually amazing. Where else can you team bright pink knee-high socks with a diamond-print top and get fashion kudos? Definitely not the boring old tennis club. You can’t even crack Bogey jokes there either without anyone rolling their eyes. Lame!
Like any hobby or interest, there surely is no better way to enjoy golf than on a holiday. So for those as serious about their clashing prints as their crossover release, take note of this week’s Amazing Thames Valley Company: Golfbreaks.com based in Windsor and Maidenhead.
Employing over 100 people and turning over 40 – 50 mill a year, Golfbreaks.com expertly handles your perfect golfing holiday. Formed in 1998 by Chief Executive Andrew Stanley, you’re in good hands with a golf-loving team which has 20 years’ worth of experience and an in-depth knowledge of courses and resorts across the globe. With 2,500 destinations on offer, featuring world-class courses boasting breath-taking views from Scotland to Dubai, you’ll be spoilt for choice with where to tee-off.”
For those interested but turned-off by golf’s “stale, male and pale” stereotype, things are changing: The National Golf Foundation highlighted in its 2019 Golf Industry Report that the sport is becoming increasingly diverse with a wave of new players in the US: female golfers have grown by 7% in six years and 26% of new golfers are non-caucasion.
With golf numbers climbing and millions reportedly interested in the sport, demand for golfing holidays are only set to rise. Furthermore, indulging in a trip doesn’t even have to break the bank: Golfbreaks.com offers discount and affordable getaways, handy for those saving up for a really nice pair of plaids or a fancy visor. Needless to say, luxury packages are available too if you’re in the market for a splurge.
So why not bin that out-of-vogue white matching two-piece, pack your snazziest polo, and jet off into the sunset.
So from everyone here at Selective Recruitment, to everyone at Golfbreaks.com, WE SALUTE YOU!
