The Trust acknowledges the importance that an acting up or secondment opportunity may have for its staff to enable them to gain new skills and explore new careers. These opportunities are a valuable way of offering employees professional development internally and or externally and allow the Trust to grow their own staff.
The Trust therefore encourages, promotes and supports the involvement of Secondments and Acting Up opportunities within its hospitals and services and recognises the valuable contribution and efforts that current staff members can make when working within a different service.
The Trust is committed to be being an employer of choice, offering modern employment practices which support staff to develop their skills and knowledge and promote career progression.
This policy provides a clear and consistent framework for managing acting up appointments and considering requests by staff to apply for secondment opportunities.
