You are working in a small wealth management organisation which suffered through Covid because of work dropping off and redundancies were made. As a result, you were forced to pick up several duties which required quick learning on your behalf.
The MD had strongly suggested your upskilling would make you a terrific candidate for a more advanced role in the future. The organisation also paid for some micro courses you needed to prepare yourself for the responsibilites you were taking on. You feel you've flourished in the role and started to develop good working relationships with the clients you've looked after. The recovery this past 6 months has been very strong and the organisation is now hiring again. You hear in passing that the MD’s daughter is coming to work at the firm, and feel pretty confident she will be offered the role that had been suggested would be yours.
