Career development is about how we take responsibility for and manage our own career. It is a series of activities which include defining a Personal Development plan aligned to career aspirations, and tapping into different development methods, such as training activities, secondments, work shadowing and mentoring/coaching to acquire new knowledge, skills and experience.


By engaging in these types of activities we are better prepared to take advantage of career opportunities as and when they arise at Edinburgh Napier University.


Within Professional Services, promotion opportunities normally happen when a role becomes available and the individual’s skills, experience and qualifications match the requirements of the role.


The main objective of our career development work is to support Professional Services colleagues with clearer routes for career development, aligned to their personal career aspirations.
