This paper considers third space professional staff and invisibility within institutions and the possibility of imposter syndrome. The binary profession perspective of individual institutions is compounded by the sector itself, which fails to recognise the unique identity of the third space professional in higher education, impeding career progression through an unnecessarily rigid adherence to an overly traditional approach to describing requirements for more senior roles in institutions. What might be done?
