'I've experienced Lynsey whilst looking for a suitable role for myself and then as a manager requiring a number of technical positions. Both experiences have been excellent. During the past 6 months of recruitment, Lynsey has found excellent candidates for my vacancies, provided me with background to the candidates where it's missing on the CV and ensured each candidate turned up. Lynsey keeps in touch, irrespective of any vacancies and provides valuable insights into the technical resource status for Exeter and the surrounding area. I recommend Lynsey for any technical recruitment requirements and for any former colleagues looking for alternate employment.'

At the end of 2020, it was reported that three-quarters of UK workers had experienced burnout as a direct result of the workplaces changes brought about by the pandemic – notably being thrown into working from home with no choice. And in 2021, this worrying trend has seemingly continued with 1 in 5 employees reporting to feel unable to manage the pressures and stress levels at work.
While it may seem hard to comprehend moving jobs in a pandemic, there’s never been a better time than the present. For the first time in nearly a year and a half, the landscape is on more level footing and employers are desperate for talent. Such a candidate-led market is rare, and this is a brilliant opportunity to make the most out of taking your next step.
According to the ONS, over 100,000 new jobs have been created in the technology sector since the start of the pandemic. This now means that there are 1.6 million tech jobs across the UK alone – a booming sector and one rife with opportunity for job seekers and current employees alike.
