The tradition of working for one company in a lifetime is not regarded highly by young jobseekers, a new poll has shown.
A quarter of 16 to 21-year-olds surveyed by Alliance & Leicester claimed they are intending to change careers to suit their stage of life.
And only 16 per cent said they wish to start a career for life that will see them working for one firm until they retire.
Emma Walkley, the senior current account manager at Alliance & Leicester, noted the change in recruitment trends.
"A job for life does not appear to be an attractive proposition for the youth of today. In years gone by, the idea of doing the same job for years was the norm, but it is now not suited to today's ambitious career chameleons," she stated.
It was recently suggested by CV-Library that BBC One's The Apprentice has raised the popularity of sales roles to jobseekers.
