Singer JB Gill, from boyband JLS, launches Airwaves’ campaign ‘New Year, New Career’, which aims to give customers the opportunity to see a careers coach for free advice, following research commissioned by the chewing gum brand, which found that over half of British people are considering quitting their job in 2022, London. The research by Airwaves has also revealed that three quarters of people believe January is the best time to make major changes in their lives.
