There are loads of opportunities here, you have to willing to seize them when they arise, then they can take you to all sorts of interesting places. I was offered a project role a few years ago that I felt was a bit of a risk because it veered from the core HR path but it proved to be a great decision. It was a role that stretched and challenged me and gave me opportunities to work with teams across the globe. It was a risk that paid off for me and I am really grateful for the learning experience and exposure it gave me.
Deciding to work flexibly as part of a job share has also been a great decision for me personally. It has allowed me to have a stimulating interesting career alongside spending the time I want with my two young sons.
I would say though, that it is also important to know what is right for you and what you want. I have put my hand up for many different assignments and have relished the chances I have been given to do something different. There have also been times however when a new opportunity hasn't been right for me. As someone who works flexibly and as part of a job share, I am juggling a career and a busy home life. I am proud of this and comfortable knowing that if I don't go for something today, there will be other opportunities tomorrow.
