Personal and Professional Development


There are many benefits to undertaking an administrative secondment:

  • Develop new skills, knowledge and experiences
  • Strengthen current skills by applying them in a new area
  • Develop a greater understanding of the University
  • Gain up to date knowledge of current working practices in other areas
  • Expand horizons to support career development
  • Establish networks with colleagues
  • Create a visible personal profile within the department, division or University and establish key contacts with senior managers and leaders
  • Achieve development objectives in a time-limited period
  • Increase your opportunities for career development and progression

Please note that if you are actively seeking a secondment, you should discuss this with your 'home' department line manager at the earliest possible opportunity as you will need their agreement to release you for the duration of the secondment before you apply.
