Key motivators


by Sellick Partnership | 18 January 2016

“What are your key motivators?” This is a question I ask daily when talking to candidates about moving forward in employment. What will make you want to work for a company? What will make you want to get out of bed in the morning and go to work, day in day out?

For me, my key motivation is the place I work and job satisfaction. I want to work in a position that I enjoy and for the company that makes it worthwhile coming in to work day after day. Having recently taken the step back into recruitment, after working in another industry for the past few years, I really had to consider what would motivate me to go back to into recruitment and what kind of company was going to help with that transition.

This is the kind of question you may be asked in an interview or when discussing possible opportunities with potential employers. Some things to think about when considering what would motivate you are; 

  • What is your ideal role? What day to day duties would keep you interested?
  • How much money would be appealing to you? (Be realistic! In an ideal world we would all be millionaires!)
  • How important is it to you to that you would be able to progress within a company? Would you get bored staying in the same position?
  • Where would you like to work ideally, location wise? If travelling would be something that could be a problem for you, could this be a de-motivator?

Key motivators are different for different people. In order to receive job satisfaction, it is key that you consider what would motivate you moving forward in your employment. What is important to you?
