After months of looking for the right opportunity to broaden my experience, a secondment has come my way.
Start date: March 24.
So exciting! It almost feels surreal.
This is a temporary posting for a 6 month period, with a chance for extension. There is no 'permanent' job, but that's okay, because my home position will be held for me until my return. I am fortunate to be with a large employer that allows opportunities for lateral moves and promotions between different ministries.
I'm looking forward to learning new things and expanding my horizons. A little pay raise doesn't hurt, either.
Since it is a brand new position, I'll have a chance to influence and shape what needs to be done. Time to start planning for the first 90 Days! Good Advice to set an approach, match strategy to situation, secure early wins, negotiate success, achieve alignment, build a team and create coalitions.
Plus just figure out what it is I have to do.
