Thinking about your own “great resignation”? You wouldn’t be alone if you were.
While much of this new workplace phenomenon has been reported with a US focus – in January, nearly 4.3 million Americans quit their jobs – it’s happening in the UK too.
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) reports that resignations rose from the end of 2020 through the next six months, and then significantly exceeded pre-pandemic levels in the final quarter of 2021. In November 2021, a UK survey of 6,000 workers discovered that 24% were planning a change or a move within the next three to six months.
If that’s you, then we have highlighted three tempting jobs below, and for even more open roles, check out our Job Board.
Python Software Engineer, Hazy
The company: Hazy is the synthetic data platform of choice for financial institutions that want to conduct sophisticated data analysis by creating a synthetic copy that contains no original information and is completely safe to share, ensuring no GDPR concerns.
Benefits on offer: A competitive salary and a generous holiday allowance are just the start of the package for this role. You’ll get a day off on your birthday, and another full day a year for you to “pay it forward” and spend the day volunteering. A high-end laptop and remote working policy help with WFH, and you’ll get £150 a year towards any professional or personal course of your choice.
The role: The Python Software Engineer will join Hazy’s world-class engineering team to design and build features and systems.
About you: At least three to four years’ experience as a software engineer or software developer and a BSc degree in computer science or engineering are essential. You’ll have the ability to develop software in Python, be willing to learn new languages and technologies as required and be able to document requirements and specifications.
Revenue Analyst, Xero
The company: Xero is a cloud-based accounting software platform for small businesses with three million subscribers globally. Founded in New Zealand, its online accounting software connects SMEs with their numbers, their bank and advisors at any time.
Benefits on offer: A highly competitive salary, an employee share plan and company pension scheme with matched contributions up to 4.5% are the financial incentives here. 23 days holiday plus bank holidays, as well as an extra three days over the Christmas period are supplemented with 10 days’ wellbeing leave (for sickness, emergencies and taking a mental health break). You’ll also benefit from remote and flexible working and a top-spec MacBook or HP Z-book.
The role: The Revenue Analyst will be a finance professional who enjoys crunching the data as much as providing insights. You will work to help Xero understand its current leading indicators and what that means for forecasts. In this role, you will interact with a range of local and global leaders and become a critical partner in providing data alongside insights.
About you: You’ll have a minimum of three years’ experience in a similar FP&A, revenue analysis or revenue optimisation role with the ability to work across multiple data sets to understand trends and projections. You must have a high attention to detail and accuracy as well as excellent Excel and spreadsheet skills.
Senior Specialist, SEO, LSEG
The company: LSEG (London Stock Exchange Group) is a global financial markets infrastructure and data provider that aims to deliver value for its customers in data and analytics, capital markets and post trade.
Benefits on offer: An equal opportunities employer, LSEG offers a range of tailored benefits and support from healthcare and retirement planning to paid volunteering days and wellbeing initiatives.
