1.0 External Outward Secondments

An external outward secondment will occur when a College staff member remains under contract with the College but is based in another organisation for a defined period of time.  Secondments will normally be restricted to a one year maximum after which the staff member will be expected to return to their substantive post or an extension negotiated. 

Any secondment granted is at the discretion of the College and will normally be considered at School Manager/Executive Dean/Director level. The staff member’s attendance, performance and conduct record will be taken into account together with the development opportunity provided to the individual.  The College will invoice the organisation for the salary, on-costs and any other expenses incurred for the duration of the secondment. 

Secondees will normally maintain the same terms and conditions relating to their employment at the College unless there is an agreement to the contrary.
