What notice do I have to give my employer if I want to transfer to a new or promoted post?

A transfer within your organisation is not a termination of service, so notice to terminate is not an issue.

As transfers and promotions will be organised by your employer, they should make the necessary arrangements, including arranging cover or a replacement, and telling you when you can notify colleagues and other relevant people.
