Talk to your manager
That's right, if you want to get promoted, you need to let your manager or the head of your department know.
Tell them what your aims are and ask them what you need to do to make it to the next step.

It will also make you feel like you're making inroads towards your advancement," says Estelle.

Write down your aims and tick them off as you achieve them (probably not a great idea to share it with your colleagues though!).
