Professional Services Career Development Programme


A new two part programme to support career progression for Professional Services staff:

Part 1

This highly interactive workshop will enable you to step back from the ‘day-to-day’ and focus on your career objectives, short and long term. You will have the opportunity to explore what development opportunities you could grasp and what networks might assist you. You will also have the opportunity to consider what’s holding you back and how you can overcome these barriers to fulfill your career aspirations. You will leave the workshop with a personal career plan in draft format, that you will be able to explore in greater depth during the second part of the programme.

Part 2

An hour-long one-to-one career coaching session provided by a professional career coach from Penna, to take place on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th December. The booking link will be circulated for participants on the afternoon of Tuesday 19th November. If you do not receive the booking link on Tuesday 19th, please contact PPD.
Target audience
  • Assistant and Academic-Related staff
  • We particularly welcome women and BAME staff
  • PLEASE NOTE: To ensure a fair and representative spread of participation, it may be necessary to limit the number of places allocated to individuals from a single institution. Due to an extremely high demand for these workshops, PPD may need to prioritise places for individuals from key target groups.
  • This programme is not suitable for Research staff/postdoctoral research staff. Please refer to the University Careers Service for information on specific careers support for this staff group
  • Further details regarding PPD's eligibility criteria are available

Participants are expected to create a visual representation of their own career pathway to bring with them to the Career Development Workshop. Six examples are available online:
