Personal and Professional Development


Next step - identify where you want to get to

When identifying your career goal it is important that the goal is SMART:

S pecific
M easurable
A chievable
R ealistic
T ime-Limited


Some examples of a SMART career goal:

1. You have realised that you are happy in your current role but that you are motivated by helping others so a SMART career goal might be:

"In the next month I will set up a meeting with my line manager to discuss mentoring opportunities within my current role."

2. You have identified that you want a new challenge in your career and a priority for you is to spend more time with your family so a SMART career goal might be:

"In the next 3 months I will identify suitable job opportunities that offer a working pattern that fits with my family schedule."
