The new year can be a time for change, and that goes for jobs as much as other things in life.

Maybe you’re unhappy in your current role. Maybe you just fancy freshening things up. Maybe you just want to find out the lie of the land.

Either way, you want to be informed before jumping head-first into something you might hate.
