In order to help us identify the right opportunity for you, we need to understand exactly what it is that makes you tick. We like to build a profile of you; understanding your career objectives, needs and aspirations.

One tool that we have found especially effective when assisting individuals in defining their motivations is the CLAMPS model. ​The CLAMPS model is an acronym for the six main career motivators: CHALLENGE, LOCATION, ADVANCEMENT, MONEY, PEOPLE and SECURITY.

To help you establish your main career motivators you should identify from these six categories, and which three are the most important to you at this point in your career, and then rate the remainder using the scale 1-6.

When considering this it is important to bear in mind that over the years, the importance of the elements of the CLAMPS model will change. It may be worthwhile to revisit this model every so often, to see how your career motivations change.​
