Secondment opportunities

What is a secondment?

A secondment is the temporary transfer of an employee of one organisation (e.g. Civil Service) to another external organisation (e.g. private sector, public sector, third sector). It can help develop skills, broaden horizons and improve a CV. This is in contrast to a loan which is the temporary internal transfer of an existing civil servant from one Civil Service organisation to another, for an agreed period of time. 

The secondments opportunities are open to civil servants.

Why do a secondment?

Secondments have a number of benefits for the individual and the Civil Service:

  • Capability development – the opportunity to acquire specific technical and specialist skill
  • Exposure to new thinking and the scope to experience first hand innovation in a different sector that could transform future delivery in the Civil Service
  • Professional growth through the expansion of networks and communities of practice beyond the Civil Service
  • Valuable career development via the opportunity to lead and manage in a different operating environment
