Secondment

 

What is a secondment?

There are two types of secondment, internal secondment and external secondment.

Internal secondment

An internal secondment is the temporary transfer of an employee to another job within Denbighshire County Council. The secondment will usually be for a specific purpose and will range from 3 months to 24 months. As a secondment opportunity, the employee who is successful in their application will be able to undertake the secondment with the assurance that their current job role remains 'open' for their return.

External secondment

An external secondment is the temporary transfer of an employee to another government body or partnership company. The secondment length is at the discretion of the external organisation. As a secondment opportunity, the employee who is successful in their application will be able to undertake the secondment with the assurance that their current job role remains ‘open’ for their return.
