I've written before about the secrets of success and not assuming being great at your job will mean that you are in-line for promotion. Google here gives some really good insight into what they look for when promoting managers.
Google goes as as far as frequently quizzing staff about their managers to find out the strength of a manager and whether they are truly worthy of a promotion.
In a prior post http://insights.tmpw.co.uk/post/102fjze/just-being-great-isnt-good-enough I demonstrated that in order to get on others need to talk fluently about your work when you are not around to put you in the best place to be considered for a promotion. You need to find an advocate of your work. Have you done that yet?
Good managers give their team the opportunity to stretch and develop their careers. I have seen a great example of this in my organisation. When my boss wanted to progress she was given exposure to the next role above her for three months in an acting-up capacity so that she could evidence success when applying for the role officially. We've all heard the saying "dress for the role you want not the role you have" which is the underlying principle here.
It may not be a priority for you now to think about promotion particularly with the restrictions on working under Coronavirus. However if you have more time on your hands you may have more time to focus on you and think about where you want to be and how you are going to get there.
