STEP SIDE­WAYS

Why get­ting crabby could help your ca­reer

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

Work start­ing to re­sem­ble Ground­hog Day? Pro­mo­tion look­ing as likely as a “clean” Brexit? And yet… you don’t want to leave your com­pany en­tirely? Then take a crab-like stroll side­ways. The cor­po­rate world calls this “lat­eral trans­fer­ring”, and it ba­si­cally in­volves mov­ing teams within the same busi­ness and stay­ing roughly within the same pay bracket to in­crease your skill set. Pick a role that has some cross­over with your cur­rent one, and give your boss plenty of warn­ing, ad­vises Bev­er­ley Ni­cholas, re­gional tal­ent direc­tor at Michael Page Re­cruit­ment. “Of­fer to sup­port them in hir­ing and train­ing your re­place­ment, too,” she adds. This way, you’ll be the only one get­ting crabby.
