I have a question and a weird situation, I left my company to join another company last March, I was offered a management position and then I will be offered another management position (more important).
The issue is that in the end I wasn't offered that position because they decided to rely on in an internal candidate with better knoweledge of the internal processes. That's wasn't the deal we had, but anyway and moving forward, they are instered in keeping me in the company because they want to use my experience. So they will create another department that I will manage and they will offer me the head of that department.
I'm not sure which will be my main role leading that group, of course I'll review carefully the job description once they finalised it. But I would like to ask you for advise about what I should pay attention to.
My first thoughts are
- Position of this group within the company
- Reporting line?
- How many people will be in that group?
- In terms of career path what might be the personal development of this team (and for me)?
What else do you think I should take care of? This is important for me since based on this my career will be positive or ....
Thank you and regards from sunny Madrid :)
