When you find yourself moving up the career ladder within a specialist or technical profession, often it can suddenly feel like you’re the little fish in the big pond all over again.
Surbjit Kaur, now a senior management consultant for EY, started out as a research scientist – and credits the confidence she needed to branch her career out into management to Chartered Manager.
"With the work I do, there’s nothing to say you’re qualified to do that, but from an industrial and practical application perspective, Chartered Manager status gives you that endorsement because of its experience-based approach."
