The recent appointment of Laura Kuenssberg as the Political Editor of the BBC attracted considerable media attention, mainly because she is the first woman to be appointed to this role.
Predictably there has been much discussion around the diversity angle; however it caught my attention for several other reasons too. Firstly, I like to see Scottish people do well in life! Secondly, it is interesting to note that Laura left the BBC in 2011 to join ITV and then returned to The BBC on Newsnight in 2014.
It set me thinking about the question – “Is it a good idea to return to a former employer?” Certainly, in this instance it has worked in Laura’s favour and from my window on the world in BLT Towers I have seen people leave and then very successfully return to an employer at a later stage in their career. I have also seen people return only to quickly realise why they left in the first instance!
What do you think folks? Have you ever returned to a previous employer and with what results? Would you consider doing so? Or is it better to leave, take your friendships with you and move on never to return? Let us know your thoughts …….
