Hi! Thanks for the question. Here are some advice for these types of questions. "Avoid saying anything negative about your current/previous employer. Focus instead on the positive reasons for wanting to make a career move. If there was a disagreement or you were unhappy with the way things were running, be matter-of-fact about it without appearing to bear a grudge." Source: http://www.icaew.co.uk/index.cfm?route=125075 "(Note: This is a question obviously directed at the currently employed. Reason for leaving one?s former employer demands an entirely different strategy.) If answered improperly this can be an invitation to negativity, one of the main ingredients that eliminates good candidates. I have always encouraged candidates to divert this question toward a "Why do you want to work for us?" response. Not only will this strategy assure you don?t speak badly about the company that provides your paycheck but you can actually strengthen your credibility regarding why you should be the candidate of choice."

How about "I have no problem with my current employer. I'm happy there for now. But I do want to expand my experience and capabiities beyond the opportunities available with my current employer."
