Secondment Policy


The University of Nottingham recognises the talent and potential of its people and strives to ensure that staff have access to a range of opportunities to gain skills and experience. This helps the University achieve its strategic and operational goals through a highly skilled and capable workforce, while offering individuals continuing personal and professional development.

Secondments can provide an ideal opportunity for individuals to gain new skills and capabilites, and for the University to bring in external expertise or grow internal potential while making best use of its resources to meet business needs.

The following documents are available to support managers and individuals in identifying and using secondments. Any questions not answered by these documents can be directed to the HR Business Partners.
