Host Jerome Doraisamy welcomes back nrol director Jesse Shah to discuss where candidates are at as the end of financial year approaches, what they are telling him about what they are seeking in financial year 2024, whether candidates are leaning more towards having a better workplace culture or a higher salary in the coming year, and how one’s level as a lawyer may dictate such thinking.

Mr Shah explains how the proliferation of burnout may be influencing the motivations of candidates moving forward, the extent to which inflation and cost of living may drive one’s thinking, the decrease in the number of firms looking to make above-CPI salary bumps, how best candidates can weigh up the various considerations in front of them, his advice to all candidates, and also discusses nrol’s international expansion.
