Of course, you’ll have to be interviewed and assessed, as you’re unlikely to be the only one sitting around the modern boardroom tables with a slightly nervous edge!

For many, a promotion is a great way to beat boredom and focus on progression. If it’s not for you, that’s equally as fine, but having a plan means you’re far more likely to have a large amount of job satisfaction.
