Bradley, look at your business strategically. See what areas are under the most sustained pressure as no doubt those areas will be looking for extra resource.
Wanting to progress is always the most important aspect and start taking an interest in the other areas of the business. Here's the rub though. You need to excel at your present role and take on the learning in your own time. Any prior perceptions will change with most half decent managers taking note.
I'm paying for degree courses for two employees. One who showed potential on the macs after starting in finishing and one individual who wrote an eloquent letter, passed some challenges we set, to start a new role within the business and a degree course.
Everyone of my senior management team started at the bottom, showed an appetite for doing more and not being constrained by obstacles of hindered by negativity. I feed and support ethos and the business has grown over 600% in the last seven years. That's working collaboratively together and ensuring I go to my colleagues and saying well done and here's our appreciation. It also means having a sales led organisation and taking a broad perspective on future revenue streams and ensuring colleagues have enough support. That's one of my roles.
Given your growth companies growth the owner will be looking to upscale cost effectively and with some safe pairs of hands which is an ideal time for a conversation.
Going back to that letter it was the enthusiasm and need to self improve which made me take note. Give me that quality every time over experience!
