What Is the Way to Write a Secondment Letter?

An efficient secondment letter confirms the arrangement and the agreed upon terms. Secondment is an arrangement where a worker temporarily works for another department or area of the same or other company or organization, usually on a specific project.

The secondment letter generally begins with a statement acknowledging the general terms of the temporary employment agreement. It then describes the specific terms and clauses of secondment, which may include:

  • Compensation, including any bonus opportunities.
  • The exact term and scope of the work involved.
  • Holidays and any benefits which may be applicable.
  • Special conditions which may apply to a specific situation, such as currency exchange and tax matters.
