‘I’ve always imagined myself as a consultant in Health Protection one day and that’s something I’m now exploring and have ambition of. I now feel I’m ready to take those steps because of the confidence in my skills and the work I’m doing. I not only see myself getting there but also somewhere higher, doing more strategic national work in the organisation as a consultant as well. I’ll probably laugh at myself in 10 years’ time for suggesting something like that but that’s the confidence I feel I have right now.
