As a senior executive there are formal and informal opportunities available for your professional development within your agency and across the sector. You are required to enter into a performance agreement with your employer, and have your performance reviewed at least annually. Further information about these requirements are set out in your employment contract as well as the Performance Development Framework.
Goal-setting sits at the heart of high performance. You are encouraged to have goal-setting conversations to guide your own, as well as your team’s performance.
You are responsible for your professional development. You should seek out networking and educational opportunities. Your agency will have internal learning and development policies and you should reach out to your HR business partner to learn more about these options.
Informal development opportunities include taking secondments in other public sector agencies to promote collaboration, knowledge sharing and professional growth.
