Management roles (including DD) come in all forms. Some of these roles can be taken up by anyone. Some of those roles are designated "superscale" roles, meaning they are reserved for talent scheme people. These superscale roles are hard to get, in fact near impossible, if you are not on a talent scheme.

But if you are not on a talent scheme, you really do not want those roles. Your pay will not be worth the work you put in. These roles are designated superscale because they are tough. The Perm Sec will look at you during meetings. You will be asked to defend yourself to Ministers. You will 100% not have good work-life balance.

happens all the time. not just for government, but other companies.

could mean one of the following:

(i) the role you applied for is filled, but they still think you're decent

(ii) they don't think you're suitable for the role u applied for, but are suitable for the other other

(iii) the hiring needs for that other role is more urgent

(iv) less likely - the pay in the current role does not match what you want, but it matches the other role better

depends on what you are looking for in life

I would say the best ROI in terms of effort put in vs pay, would be a junior Director/senior DD in a non-superscale position.

Anything in a ministry with the word "strategy" or "policy" in the division name/job title is likely to be superscale DD. the rest of the roles are a bit less clear, stat boards also a bit less clear.

If you are in the org, you can probably figure it out. See which DDs are the most overworked, ends up doing COS, etc.

Finance and Admin DDs usually not superscale, HR also usually not.
