Bankers are amongst the professionals most likely to consider a dramatic career change, according to a new investigation.
A feature published on cnbc.com has concluded that an increasing amount of City workers are quitting their jobs in order to try their hand at something radically different.
This is partly because of the diminishing amount of top banking jobs becoming available, but also because bankers tend to earn enough money to be able to launch their own business.
Those hoping to start a business in an industry unfamiliar to them might want to consider researching the franchise opportunities for sale, rather than risking money on an unproven business model.
A lot of the bankers featured in the case study were convinced by the lure of being their own boss. One of them is dance instructor Nataliya Grigoriva who claimed to have come across many bankers who had a similar dilemma to her.
According to hereisthecity.com, she revealed: “I do know quite a few people who left the industry and started up something completely different. In fact, there are various communities of ex-City professionals who have escaped the City or are thinking of doing so in the near future and joining them can be helpful in terms of getting advice and inspiration.”
