Top tips to help you bulletproof your role

No one has a job for life anymore nor is there really much call for one – employees like variety, but only when they choose it. Stability within a company can’t be guaranteed either, what with the current economic uncertainty. So how can you bulletproof yourself in your role and secure your position until you are ready to move on? We’ve pulled together some top tips to help you.

Do amazing work

Seems obvious really, but so many people think that mediocre work is enough to keep them in employment. Not anymore, particularly if your company is cost cutting. You need to go above and beyond on a daily basis to prove you add value to an organisation.

Build Strong Relationships

Cultivate positive relationships with colleagues and clients at all levels. Networking and being well-liked can help protect your role.

Be Proactive

Anticipate challenges and suggest solutions. Show that you're invested in the success of the company and are willing to go the extra mile.

Show Results

Consistently deliver high-quality work and demonstrate your impact on the company's goals. Quantifiable results make you indispensable.

Be Adaptable

Embrace change and be willing to take on new responsibilities. A flexible mindset makes you an asset in a rapidly evolving work environment.

Stay Informed

Keep up with industry trends, emerging technologies, and relevant news. Being knowledgeable about your field shows that you're invested in staying current.

Diversify Your Skillset

Continuously learn and develop new skills related to your industry. This makes you more versatile and valuable to the organisation.

Be a Team Player

Collaborate effectively with others and contribute to a positive work culture. Your ability to work well in a team will be highly valued.

Stay visible

This means making sure your boss and colleagues know who you are and the value you add to the team. You can make yourself visible in a variety of effective ways, from how you dress to how you behave in meetings. If you create a good perception of yourself, you are less likely to be let go.

Professional development

Investing time in your own professional development will help you become a more valuable asset. Define your career aspirations, create a career development plan and hen share this information with your boss and ask for his or her help and support.

If you work hard, have a positive and friendly approach then you will become a valuable and valued asset to your company.
