Secondments and acting-up periods
Workers should only be registered according to the role they carry out. If you are working in a seconded or acting-up post, it might mean you need to move to a different part of the SSSC Register or you may even have to come off the Register altogether.
Here’s what you need to do if you’re on secondment or acting-up.
Check if you are currently working in a post that requires registration. You can ask your employer or visit the Help with Register parts, fees and qualifications page which has all the different parts of our Register.
If you are seconded to a post that requires registration and you will be in this post for more than six months, you need to come off the part of the Register for your original post. You then need to apply to the part of the Register for the seconded post.
If you are seconded to a post that does not require registration, you need to come off the part of the Register for your original post. You will then have six months to reapply when you return to your original post.
You might not need to pay an application fee if you are within six months of your current registration period or you have paid an annual or renewal fee within the last six months. Find out more about fees here.
