Do you feel like you are at a point in your career where you feel you should be given more responsibility? Sometimes, all it takes is a little extra work to catch a senior colleague's attention.

Boost your internal profile with these steps below to help you progress in your career.

 

 

Volunteer yourself for big projects

In order to be given more responsibility, you have to prove to your employer that you are capable. This might mean that you will have to do more than your current job description allows.

By volunteering to take on more responsibility you will earn a reputation as someone who can be relied on.

Attend training and development programmes

Do your research to see what programmes are available to you. Have a think about how you want to develop or what you want to gain more knowledge in. All employees are entitled to take time off for training days so pitch these sessions to your manager and ask if you can attend.

These programmes will help you build on and widen your knowledge and skills which you can apply to your day-to-day job.

Use your appraisal

Your appraisal is a great opportunity to voice your ambitions to take on more projects and responsibility. In your appraisal ensure you provide examples of where you have shown leadership skills as well as being proactive.

If you have particular tasks you would like to work on, bring these up. You might have some ideas of your own and your appraisal is the perfect time to pitch these.
