7 Key Points to Consider Before Accepting A Job Offer

You don’t need to be an experienced recruitment agency in Surrey, like On Track, to know that it can be both exciting and nerve-wracking to hear back from an interviewer and find out that you’ve been offered the position you applied for.


A new job means new horizons, and big changes can bring both positives and negatives into your life, so it goes without saying that you need to think things through before you accept or perhaps decline the offer presented to you.


There are of course many factors that will affect whether a job is the one for you and your particular set of circumstances, but here are 7 key points to get you started as you ponder the possibilities.

Do you actually feel the role will be a ‘right’ for you in terms of job content , working atmosphere and team fit ?

Is there chance for training or career progression?

In terms of salary, bonus and overall benefits is this the right choice for you

Is the location and associated commute viable? If it’s in an urban area, is there parking? If the location is remote do you mind being ‘cut off’ from shops and towns until the end of the work day?

Are there any loose ends that need to be tied up – questions to be answered or concerns to be raised?

Do you have other interviews or offers waiting in the wings, and do they appeal to you more?
