Moving departments in the Civil ServiceWatch
My questions areI’ve not been working for the CS for very long (i have passed probation) and have seen another role, in another department that i like the sound of1) Is there an unwritten CS rule about how long you should stay in 1 role/department?2) Do I need to tell my line manager if I apply?
They don't have to to agree to any secondment, not sure but probably the same for loans.
They shouldn't/couldn't prevent you from internal (same government department) promotion. They probably can prevent you from level transfer within the same government department if you haven't been in post the minimum time as specified when you were recruited.
