Summary of Changes/Comments
13/01/2020 - The Rank-in-Post policy will be reviewed when the new Mobility Policy currently under discussion, is published. Until such time the POPP requires a clarification that the RR/DRR post selections are filled through the POOLs which straddle multiple grades, hence the Rank-in-Post does not apply to the POOL selections. The Administrator will continue to exercise his prerogative through the Executive Group to determine the grade that the incumbent will serve at.

01/08/2017 - The Rank in Post policy was amended to reflect changes made to the Recruitment and Selection Policy, which includes the removal of minimum time in post requirements.

01/06/2017 - Time-in-post requirements were removed.

14/10/2013 - Alignment and clarification of Rank in Post provision changed (paras. 2.2 and 2.3).

17/08/2011 - Authority for time-in-post waiver
