Intro

Moving between jobs is now seen as a common reality of most people’s working lives, and we know that government and employer policies can affect both the frequency and type of job mobility happening in the UK, for example through policies that address the supply of skills in the UK which help to better match people with jobs.

Because of this, it’s important to better understand:

  • the relationship between changing jobs and wellbeing
  • which types of job change are associated with the largest wellbeing changes.

We consider:

  1. changing jobs with the same employer
  2. changing employers for a better job – for instance one with higher wages, more desirable hours, or a permanent contract.
  3. changing employers because of redundancy, dismissal or end of contract
  4. changing employers for other reasons, for example family reasons or moving out of the area.
