More leave their jobs than before

There was a 100 per cent increase in the number of charity and public sector workers who quit their jobs last year, according to a survey by the Chartered Management Institute.

The survey showed that 5.2 per cent of staff in the charity and public sectors left their roles in the year ending January 2007, compared with 2.6 per cent the year before.

The survey, carried out among organisations representing 42,000 workers from all sectors of the economy, included responses from 16 charities and seven public bodies. It also showed that charity and public sector workers got the worst pay.

Maria Aguilar, director of consultancy HR Services Partnership, said more people were changing jobs within the charity sector because of increased uncertainty over funding.
