I have six years experience in a large Public Sector organisation head office as an internal Senior Transformation Consultant. I also gained my MBA in 1999.
I am seeking a new challenge and adventure in a private sector meritocracy where change innovation, creativity are actively encouraged and there is ample opportunity to learn and develop new skills (either as an internal or external consultant)
Am I dreaming?
This presently seems to be an impossible task as I have been told in feedback on a number of occasions that Public Sector workers hold the stigma of being lazy, tea-drinking good-for- nothings who love structure red tape and are resistant to change.
Don't they realise that these may be the very reasons I would like work elswhere?
I hate being pigeon-holed and need advice on how I can market myself in the world of the private sector to work as a consultant either in a private consultancy firm or as an internal consultant within a large organisation.I have to let people see beyond the Public Sector image they have and to make recruiters/agencies realise I have great transferable skills which would truly benefit their organisation. I can't keep telling myself 'well its their loss' for much longer.
Many thanks for any advice.
