The Career Moves toolkit that supports staff to think and reflect on their career. At Imperial, we have identified six career moves that staff tend to take – these are:

  • Ladder
  • Grid
  • Voyage
  • Rooted
  • Expedition
  • Boomerang

The booklet, found on the right-hand side of this page not only goes into detail about each of the above career moves, but also highlights different factors that play a part in career development. This guide invites staff to think about their career holistically, considering all the various factors that help towards building a career.

In addition to the booklet, we are also offering workshops to both staff and managers to provide guidance around the Career Moves framework. If you are interested in hosting a Career Moves manager session in your area, please contact Beth Richardson, Learning and Development Adviser at for more information. For upcoming staff sessions, please refer to the information below.
