A secondment for us here in NZ would be a new job but within the organization, like I could be seconded to a higher role within the University for a year, covering someone on maternity leave or something similar. After that year, I would go back to my previous job, or I could apply to take over the role permanently if it worked out.

They're pretty common in large organizations here, good for dipping your toes in a different world with a bit of safety if things don't suit.

Oh! That's an interesting version of a secondment I wasn't aware of.

What a cool way to "try on" a bit more responsibility, and see if the role fits. Clever.
