Will 80:20 posts have to reapply for roles?

QUESTION:

In previous restructures a number of posts have been deemed to be ‘ 80:20 ‘ matches and therefore the staff in these posts have not had to reapply for these jobs.

My question is would this be applied to this restructure once the MSS have been completed or will all the remaining posts have to be applied for by remaining staff members.

ANSWER:

The Ways of Working programme will shortly be made available for consultation. As part of this, the business case will include the new proposed structures for comment as part of the consultation process. Once the roles have been determined at the end of the consultation process, we will then look to see if any individuals are an 80:20 match to the roles or whether there will be a process of appointment.
