Confirmation in appointment vs Conversion to permanent post

In the context of probation, confirmation in appointment means that the staff member is confirmed in their current post under the terms and conditions stated in their most recent contract, and is not to be confused with Conversion to Permanent post which is subject to a separate procedure that is outside the Staff Performance and Review Team's remit. If you are interested in the process of converting a staff member to permanency, please see our HR website and contact the HR Partner for your Faculty.
