When the pay is alright, the conditions are suitable, and there are staff you get on with, it can be hard to break away from a job and find something new. However, there are some signs you should look out that indicate now is the time for a career change. 

It is very rare to enjoy every day at work, but if you find yourself clock watching so you can leave as soon as possible or counting down the hours till you can go, this is a strong sign you are not interested in your role anymore. 

Work is meant to feel inspiring and you should receive enough support from your colleagues and employer to want to give as much as you can to your job, but if neither of these apply anymore, you might need a change.

Indeed, career coaches often hear their clients say they feel invisible in the workplace. You might relate to having all your work overlooked, not being listened to or able to collaborate with the team, and feeling as though everything you do is redundant.

Feeling valued is essential to be able to fulfil your potential and boost productivity, so if your employer does not utilise you to your best ability, find somewhere that will. 

Stress is a growing problem and it counted for the majority of days lost due to work-related ill health in 2022/23, with 17.1 million people taking time off for depression and anxiety caused by their jobs.

Signs of stress include having arguments, arriving for work later, feeling twitchy, mood swings, being withdrawn, taking more time off, having a lack of motivation or commitment, and having heightened emotional reactions. 

So, if you are beginning to exhibit any of these symptoms, it might be time to find a new role that does not make you feel stressed.
