Consider the possibility to get promoted yourself into the same post you dream for. The best you can do is showing your curiosity of learning new things and challenging your capabilities regardless the designation of your post. For example if you have achieved something which can benefit the others then you must showcase your leadership qualities without offending the fellow colleagues.

Practice and host your skills

Try to have a formal 15-20 minute meeting with your HR team and top management. The point is to learn something new from everyone and also explain about your achievements.
