Are candidates allocated certain postings or is it up to the individual to organise these postings? And how much chance is there to tailor postings to our interests, for example international policy? Thank you!

Hi Lorna, there will be four placements across the three years - 2 in policy, 1 in private office, and one in either in the NHS or an arm's length body - these will be allocated by the central team, though we will flex according to experience and development need

Okay, thank you very much! Are there any lists anywhere of example departments we could be posted in please?

Three of the placements will be in DHSC, and the secondment could be in a number of organisations - the placements will be chosen to reflect departmental priorities
