As part of the county council's approach to delivering its savings plans we restrict many of our current vacancies to internal applicants. Applications from employees working in ‘Community’ or ‘Voluntary Controlled’ schools will be considered as internal applicants.
Please note that if you have previously left the Council for reasons of redundancy, the Council's procedure stipulates that your application will require consideration by the Assistant Director, People Management in order to decide whether the circumstances would permit your re-employment and therefore whether or not your application can be progressed.
If for any reason a re-engagement is contemplated with a previous employee whose employment was terminated for reasons of compulsory or voluntary redundancy, or early retirement the Assistant Director, People Management must give authorisation prior to any re-engagement taking place. This guidance for re-engagement includes; temporary or part-time work, work undertaken as a consultant or on an interim basis, or work undertaken as an agency worker.
