You’ve been there before – you have been in a role for a number of months or years, you are enjoying it, and the prospects are good for career progression.

All is well! However, then something comes along that you need. It could be a pay rise – due to increased responsibility or an increased cost of living – it could be more training to get you that next level, or it could be flexible working; a growing trend among Employees in workplaces all over the world, let alone the UK.
