Career Advice

26/03/20

** DEFAULT postresults.summarylabel - en-GB **

At Marks Sattin we are well into our second week of working from home in accordance with government advice on social distancing and self-isolation. It has been quite the change – working in a recruitment office typically comes with an energetic atmosphere; colleagues bouncing ideas back and forth (as well as harmless banter), praise if someone closes a deal, or successfully headhunts a great candidate, as well as the all important element of instant constructive feedback. This is tough to replicate whilst working from home! With this in mind, I have put together some advice with our candidates and clients in mind, who may be going through the same adjustments. Focusing on good mental health and wellbeing in these strange times is a priority. Below are a few of what I believe to be some key considerations of maintaining good mental health during this time of social distancing/working from home. These are: • Routine • Exercise • Contact  • Stress and anxiety Routine Working from home carries with it a big change in your daily routine. No tube or train back and forth every day, which will be a blessing for some, but equally no chat with colleagues over lunch, and no longer being in an environment which encourages a structured approach to your working day. Here are a few tips on how to adjust to the change: Create a dedicated work space Productivity can be a challenge occasionally which can be made more difficult at home – there are more distractions and no colleagues around to keep you in check. Do your best to make your home office as work like as possible – no sitting with your laptop in bed. Have a separate, quiet space where you are less prone to outside influence. Invest your commuting time into something productive The general commute is typically around 50 minutes each way, although plenty of people will suffer worse than that! It doesn’t take much imagination to think of ways you could use that time, both to improve your mental health as well as invest in yourself. Stick to your normal wake up schedule and use the early morning, rather than lying in and waiting for your work day to start, do some exercise. A morning run (especially in the sunshine) will put you in a great mood by the time you get back to your home desk. You could read a book, educational or otherwise, or just put a bit of extra time into making yourself an indulgent breakfast – the possibilities are endless and using your time with a purpose is essential to good mental wellbeing. Make positive changes to your diet An often unavoidable downside of office life is the effects it has on your diet – speed is prioritised over nutritional value and often an unhealthy pick-me-up or two is inevitable. It’s rare that a day goes by in our office that someone doesn’t show up with chocolate or sweets! Working from home offers a great chance to flip this on its head. Put time into meal planning for the week; get creative, eat more vegetables (immune boosting) and less processed food. Time to cook for yourself can help you eat better which is beneficial for your mental health, physical health and not to mention your wallet! Exercise For many, exercise is a big contributor to a positive mental outlook, and as we’re all aware all our usual gyms and exercise studios are now closed. This begs us to reinvent our exercise routine, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Get outdoors if you can As the saying goes; outside is free! If you are healthy and focusing on social distancing rather than self-isolating, then now is a great time to utilise any nature spaces you might have nearby. Put on your running or walking shoes and go explore.  On top of this it is more important than ever to get a regular supply of vitamin D - it may even be worth considering purchasing a daily supplement. If you want to get serious and specific about your running, think about entering an event later in the year and kick off your training for it. I was already down to race the Yorkshire marathon in October, so I have plenty of time to get some mileage in! Do research, invest in a heart rate monitor or another activity tracker, put all your runs up on Strava (other apps are available) and use this challenge to motivate and inspire you and others. Home gym Indoor training can be just as beneficial, even just to break up the working day – you can’t exactly crack out push-ups in the middle of a real office can you?  Try and do a set number of your chosen exercise on the minute, every minute for 30 minutes – 10 push ups like this and you’ll have done 300 in far less time than the average London commute. Three times a week and in a month you will have done 3,600. Google and YouTube are your exercise friends, research some videos and keep track of what you do and share it with your friends or colleagues, maybe even make it a company competition. Setting challenges for yourself outside of work will help you stay mentally strong through these tough times. Contact As difficult as the current predicament is, never in human history have we been better equipped to deal with the human contact aspects of pandemic induced self-isolation.  Colleagues Interaction at the workplace helps the day go by, whether that be productive conversations or just back and forth about the daily news or sport. Since working from home our team have held a daily google hangout at 9am where we talk through our work related plans for the day but a section of it is just general conversation – it’s a great way to make sure you have some form of human contact that is also productive to your work! Friends and family With the new stricter self-isolation rules imposed by the government, seeing your family and friends is all but impossible. This can be a serious drain on people’s mental health, especially on weekends where normal plans have evaporated and time can stand still. Again, video is a wonderful tool to maintain contact. Applications like Houseparty have made it easier than ever to stay in touch with those you care about; why not try a virtual movie night or virtual happy hour? Stress and anxiety Apprehension about the future plays a large part in mental wellbeing. So the question is how can we maintain a positive mind-set? Health The situation we find ourselves in is one where an individual’s health, and that of their immediate family members, is at a higher level of risk than normal. The best way to deal with the tension that this can cause is to take a hold of the areas you can control. Practice excellent hygiene, stay healthy and follow isolation guidelines. If you’re taking charge of these, you can make a difference to your wellbeing, making you less anxious about health impacts. Overall mind-set This won’t be for everyone but it’s important to limit your engagement with COVID-19 related news to once or twice a day, don’t let it overwhelm you. Too much information from too many sources is a recipe for anxiety. Control the “controllables” and don’t try to change what you have no power over. Set goals; it is hard to stay positive without a purpose. These can be long or short term; enter a running race later in the year, learn a language, start a house project – whatever it is, focus time in your day towards achieving it and this will give your mind something to work on. Track your progress and watch as you improve week on week. What do you think? We would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on how you are coping with the lockdown and indeed how you might be making the best of it! Comment on our LinkedIn post here.

Employees in the United Kingdom can be categorised as full-time, part-time, casual, freelance and contract workers, with the self-employed bracket now making up 15% of the entire working population. The number of self-employed workers jumped from 3.3 million in 2001 to 4.8 million in 2017, with a corresponding fall in the unemployment rate showing the overall boost in jobs growth from the rise in self-employment. However, the attractive market for freelancers and contractors has been hit with some uncertainty in recent times, thanks largely to the 2018 Autumn Budget’s announcement of IR35 tax reforms. Here’s what the new IR35 rules could mean for you and your business: What is IR35? IR35 is a piece of legislation originally introduced to the UK in 1999. Its purpose is to differentiate between those workers who operate as genuine contractors and those who work as ‘disguised’ employees to avoid paying tax. It came about to challenge contractors who were taking advantage of the tax efficiencies of working through a limited company, with the aim of defending both the Exchequer from lost taxes and protecting workers’ rights from unscrupulous employees. However, the IR35 has proven to be ambiguous for many, with some contractors taking advantage of loopholes and a lack of clarity. Hence, the new IR35 rules aim to tighten up the contractor market and ensure tax avoidance loopholes are closed. How does IR35 work? There are three principles that can help to determine employment status and whether a contractor falls inside or outside IR35: Control (the degree of control the client has over the work a contractor does and how and when they do it) Substitution (whether the worker needs to do the work themselves or if they could send a substitute in their place) Mutuality of obligation (whether the employer is obliged to offer work and the contractor is obliged to accept it). Additionally, the contract type, provision of equipment and whether a worker is “part and parcel” of a business can all help to determine whether someone falls inside or outside IR35. The change in IR35 rules shifts the responsibility to determine tax status away from the contractor and onto the business that takes them on. Until now, contractors have been able to self-determine their status, however as of April 2020, when the new rules come into effect for the private sector, companies will risk being fined if they don’t make the correct assessment.  How will IR35 impact contract workers? It’s anticipated that many contract workers who have been enjoying the tax benefits of working outside IR35 will fall under the legislation when employers are tasked with determining their status. This will see more contractors having tax and National Insurance contributions deducted from their pay. However, if you operate as a legitimate small business and are determined to work outside of IR35, you will not be affected by the rule changes. How will IR35 impact employers? The major change for businesses is that they will now be responsible for determining the IR35 status of any contractor working for the company. The new rules will only apply to medium and large sized businesses, so contractors who work for small businesses can continue to set their own IR35 statuses. Those businesses that the IR35 rule changes do apply to will face paying back taxes and fines should they be found to be noncompliant. What should I do to prepare for IR35? Contractors may wish to speak to an accountant or personal finance expert to determine whether IR35 will impact them and if a move to permanent work may prove to be more beneficial after the rules come into effect. For many, contracting will remain appealing regardless of increased tax responsibilities, however it’s important to factor in any change in income that IR35 may bring about. Businesses are being warned not to make blanket assessments that cover all their contractors, as this can leave workers without a fair assessment and risk them paying unnecessary taxes without equivalent employment rights. Instead, businesses should consider IR35 status on a case-by-case basis or they may risk losing out on top talent. The HMRC has released a consultation document for businesses to prepare for the IR35 changes, recommending identifying and reviewing current contract workforce status and putting processes in place for taking on new workers. At Marks Sattin, we pride ourselves on keeping abreast of all industry legislation, updates and changes that affect our candidates and clients. Speak with us about how we can help you.

The role of the CDO is being discussed more than ever before. Although the role has existed for the past 20+ years, job boards and LinkedIn were not as prevalent, and therefore the role did not have much exposure outside organisations. When you think of the CDO job title, I think the word ‘data’ would spring to mind for most people, because shouldn’t data be the main driver of most decisions made by the c-suite? However, it appears to be that the modern CDO is becoming less about pure data, in contrast to other analytics and business intelligence roles who are predominantly technical (refer to my previous blog on the ambiguity of analytics and business intelligence), and more of a holistic role encompassing areas like risk, compliance and even marketing. Of course, as a senior executive, strategy and operations will play a huge part of the role, as they do in all board level roles however, it may be worth noting the possibility of  the role of a CDO being diluted. If I put myself in a candidate’s shoes, someone who has always had a data driven role and then opts to take on a new challenge of CDO, would they miss the lack of focus in their previous position, or would they welcome the change? I think the answer is in why the person might take a CDO opportunity. For example, if you have reached a plateau in your role as ‘Business Intelligence/Analytics Director’, and your only means of career progression is to take a CDO role, then you possibly would not enjoy the variety of the role. For others, a route that has direct progression into a more strategic role, that delves away from the pure technical work that was once pivotal to their career may be deemed as a step in the right direction. So, a question to my network… is the role of the CDO a clear career step for a data professional, and should it stay as an all-encompassing position, or be more data driven?
