Can colleagues be redeployed into jobs vacated by MSS?

QUESTION:

I understand that if someone were to leave due to Voluntary Redundancy (MMS) that job cannot be advertised, however could the redundant job be replaced by re-deploying someone else within the University.

ANSWER:

In some circumstances a job may still be required but it may have a potential for a redeployment opportunity so MSSĀ could possibly be granted. Each case will be looked at on its own merits.
