yes, there are. i didn't say superscale=scholar. much easier to get into superscale schemes if you are not a scholar nowadays. but if the role is earmarked for superscale, it's hard for a non-superscale to occupy the position

Is this a red flag, & would you advise starting earlier?

(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

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.
o btw what does COS stands for?

My division has both "strategy" and "policy" in it's name....depending on how high you wanna go.....

I see, thank you for your explanation. Barring any unforeseen circumstances and if I say that I'm open to the other role, is it likely that HR will make an offer?

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.
