Firstly, identify what’s making you think about developing your career now. s it the job itself or the environment? Are you over or under performing? Does your manager take time to understand your development needs, and provide the right support?
It’s quite normal at later stages of your career to want a complete change.
Perhaps now is the time to find some work that is more meaningful, has a better life-balance or is closer to home.
