The big career debate: lifer vs mover

Future Leaders

Though a ‘job for life’ is becoming a dated adage, the retail sector is still well known for its opportunities to go from shop floor to CEO. In this debate we bring a ‘lifer’ and a ‘mover’ together to discuss the pros and cons of these two contrasting career paths.

We’ll explore:

  • Is there a 'smart' way to progress at pace?

  • How do you know whether the best route to the top is sticking with one company or moving around?

  • Will your loyalty be rewarded by the people that know you best or will your career stagnate if you stay still too long?
