Having had a couple of them now, I have found that 2-year postings seem to be too short, taking into account relocation, getting the kids in school, etc. In the past (before children) however, I used to think that 3-year postings were too long! (Not happy unless I'm moaning!) Obviously, everybody's preferences are different according to personal critera at a given gime, so could there be a way as to introduce some kind of 'option' system on receipt of a Posting Order for said Posting to be either 2 or 3 years? I know I would certainly prefer a choice, but realise the amount of extra gash admin this could create for APC-MCM Div.
