STARTING A NEW
JOB REMOTELY
Your guide to handling your notice period
and starting a new job whilst working remotely.
SHOULD I EVEN ACCEPT A JOB OFFER NOW?
Starting a new job while working from home can
be a daunting prospect. If you’re still considering
whether or not to accept a job offer, don’t worry,
this is a sensible response to the current climate
but no cause for alarm.
We’re all in the same boat
All organisations and employees across the country are facing
the same challenges and fears. This does mean, however, that
most employers are putting in place provisions to allow work
to continue as normally as possible. Remember that they have
chosen to hire you despite the outbreak and will no doubt work
as hard as possible to ensure you remain committed to starting
a new job with them.
Remember why you wanted to change
Think about what motivated you to leave your current job in
the first place – perhaps you wanted better pay, more training
opportunities or greater benefits. These issues won’t go
away after this period of isolation, so don’t miss out on this
opportunity to take the next step in your career.
You’ve done the hard work
You’ve taken the time to update your CV, search for the right job
and attended interviews – so why turn it down now? This period of
isolation will end, so while your new job may not necessarily start
off inside your new office, you will be back to normal at some point.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE THE MOST
OF YOUR NOTICE PERIOD?
Once you’ve accepted your new job, your notice
period is the perfect time to prepare your home
working environment and mindset, so you can hit
the ground running when you start your new role.
Be an expert ‘home worker’
You may well be starting your new job from home, so spend your
notice period becoming an ‘expert’ at home working to help
you to be as efficient as possible when you begin your new role.
Become an expert at hosting video conferences and make sure
you understand how common teamworking apps work.
Perfect your workspace setup
It can be difficult when working from home to be comfortable
and to get into the right mindset. Take the time before you start
a new role to designate a specific workspace at home that is
distraction-free and large enough for your needs, ideally with
a door you can close should you need to make calls. It is also
important to make sure that your workspace is comfortable, so
test your chair and desk setup are fit for purpose for extended
periods of time.
Keep in contact
You may not be able to meet face-to-face before you start
your new role, but that shouldn’t stop you keeping in regular
contact with your new employer and getting to know your new
colleagues. Grab any opportunities your new employer offers to
have video calls with team members or to be included in their
team WhatsApp group. You can also connect with your future
colleagues on social media – reach out to them on LinkedIn
before your start date to get the ball rolling.
WELCOME
This guide will help you navigate the new territory many
professionals are finding themselves in by outlining best
practice advice for handling your notice period and starting
a new job whilst working remotely.
This is a new challenge that we are all facing together, but we have the technology and
the expertise to make it work. The key factor for success is to remain positive and to keep
in regular contact with your new employer.
Ask your Hays consultant if you have concerns or questions at any time, they will be very
happy to help.
Remember that they have chosen to hire you despite the
outbreak, and will no doubt work as hard as possible to
ensure you remain committed to starting
a new job with them.

HOW TO START YOUR NEW JOB REMOTELY
Working remotely may not be the way you intended to begin your
new job, but there are things you can do to ensure you get the best
possible start.
Turn up early
While working remotely means you won’t have to think about the commute on your
first day, working remotely can throw up challenges when it comes to connecting
to the technology. If you’ve been provided with login details, give yourself plenty
of time to test these and to get setup on the first day so you can make the best
impression to your manager.
Understand your daily expectations
Make sure you are clear on your first day with your manager about what is expected
from you in your first few days and how best to update them on your progress. It is
more difficult to be visible when you’re not working in the same space as your manager,
so be proactive and check in regularly. If you have any questions or issues it is best to
raise these sooner rather than later.
Get to know your colleagues from afar
As with any new job, you’ll want to start getting to know your teammates from day one.
Overcome the challenge of not being able to meet them face-to-face by using video
calls where possible instead of phone calls, which will help you to gauge their body
language. Also provide your manager with regular updates throughout the working day.
WHAT ABOUT THE FUTURE?
Once the current crisis has passed, you will finally be having your
first day in the office and meeting your new colleagues face-to-face.
Prepare yourself for your first day as you would normally:
•	 Check how long it will take you to get to work and leave yourself plenty of time
should unforeseen issues arise
•	 Decide what you’re going to wear the night before and lay out your clothes ready
for the morning
•	 Pack your bag with everything you need in plenty of time
•	 Get a good night’s sleep beforehand
If you need any further advice or support during your notice period or
onboarding with your new organisation, rest assured that Hays consultants
will be on hand to help you every step of the way.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact
your Hays consultant.
TOP TIPS FOR
REMOTE WORKING
Set up a designated area in your
home to work
Make sure your monitor and chair
are the right height
Check your backdrop and make sure
it’s appropriate for any video calls
Structure your day to get into the
right mindset
Keep distractions to a minimum
Take regular breaks and try to head
outside for some exercise before you
start your day or at lunchtime
Keep in regular contact with your
manager and colleagues and flag if
you’re struggling in any way

Starting a new job remotely?

  • 1. social.hays.com STARTING A NEW JOB REMOTELY Your guide to handling your notice period and starting a new job whilst working remotely.
  • 2. SHOULD I EVEN ACCEPT A JOB OFFER NOW? Starting a new job while working from home can be a daunting prospect. If you’re still considering whether or not to accept a job offer, don’t worry, this is a sensible response to the current climate but no cause for alarm. We’re all in the same boat All organisations and employees across the country are facing the same challenges and fears. This does mean, however, that most employers are putting in place provisions to allow work to continue as normally as possible. Remember that they have chosen to hire you despite the outbreak and will no doubt work as hard as possible to ensure you remain committed to starting a new job with them. Remember why you wanted to change Think about what motivated you to leave your current job in the first place – perhaps you wanted better pay, more training opportunities or greater benefits. These issues won’t go away after this period of isolation, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to take the next step in your career. You’ve done the hard work You’ve taken the time to update your CV, search for the right job and attended interviews – so why turn it down now? This period of isolation will end, so while your new job may not necessarily start off inside your new office, you will be back to normal at some point. HOW CAN YOU MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR NOTICE PERIOD? Once you’ve accepted your new job, your notice period is the perfect time to prepare your home working environment and mindset, so you can hit the ground running when you start your new role. Be an expert ‘home worker’ You may well be starting your new job from home, so spend your notice period becoming an ‘expert’ at home working to help you to be as efficient as possible when you begin your new role. Become an expert at hosting video conferences and make sure you understand how common teamworking apps work. Perfect your workspace setup It can be difficult when working from home to be comfortable and to get into the right mindset. Take the time before you start a new role to designate a specific workspace at home that is distraction-free and large enough for your needs, ideally with a door you can close should you need to make calls. It is also important to make sure that your workspace is comfortable, so test your chair and desk setup are fit for purpose for extended periods of time. Keep in contact You may not be able to meet face-to-face before you start your new role, but that shouldn’t stop you keeping in regular contact with your new employer and getting to know your new colleagues. Grab any opportunities your new employer offers to have video calls with team members or to be included in their team WhatsApp group. You can also connect with your future colleagues on social media – reach out to them on LinkedIn before your start date to get the ball rolling. WELCOME This guide will help you navigate the new territory many professionals are finding themselves in by outlining best practice advice for handling your notice period and starting a new job whilst working remotely. This is a new challenge that we are all facing together, but we have the technology and the expertise to make it work. The key factor for success is to remain positive and to keep in regular contact with your new employer. Ask your Hays consultant if you have concerns or questions at any time, they will be very happy to help. Remember that they have chosen to hire you despite the outbreak, and will no doubt work as hard as possible to ensure you remain committed to starting a new job with them.

UKI-52658 HOW TO START YOUR NEW JOB REMOTELY Working remotely may not be the way you intended to begin your new job, but there are things you can do to ensure you get the best possible start. Turn up early While working remotely means you won’t have to think about the commute on your first day, working remotely can throw up challenges when it comes to connecting to the technology. If you’ve been provided with login details, give yourself plenty of time to test these and to get setup on the first day so you can make the best impression to your manager. Understand your daily expectations Make sure you are clear on your first day with your manager about what is expected from you in your first few days and how best to update them on your progress. It is more difficult to be visible when you’re not working in the same space as your manager, so be proactive and check in regularly. If you have any questions or issues it is best to raise these sooner rather than later. Get to know your colleagues from afar As with any new job, you’ll want to start getting to know your teammates from day one. Overcome the challenge of not being able to meet them face-to-face by using video calls where possible instead of phone calls, which will help you to gauge their body language. Also provide your manager with regular updates throughout the working day. WHAT ABOUT THE FUTURE? Once the current crisis has passed, you will finally be having your first day in the office and meeting your new colleagues face-to-face. Prepare yourself for your first day as you would normally: • Check how long it will take you to get to work and leave yourself plenty of time should unforeseen issues arise • Decide what you’re going to wear the night before and lay out your clothes ready for the morning • Pack your bag with everything you need in plenty of time • Get a good night’s sleep beforehand If you need any further advice or support during your notice period or onboarding with your new organisation, rest assured that Hays consultants will be on hand to help you every step of the way. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your Hays consultant. TOP TIPS FOR REMOTE WORKING Set up a designated area in your home to work Make sure your monitor and chair are the right height Check your backdrop and make sure it’s appropriate for any video calls Structure your day to get into the right mindset Keep distractions to a minimum Take regular breaks and try to head outside for some exercise before you start your day or at lunchtime Keep in regular contact with your manager and colleagues and flag if you’re struggling in any way
