Can I apply for promotion on maternity leave?

    I'm on maternity leave - have been for 2 weeks and am due to give birth 2 weeks from now. A role is about to be advertised externally which I would really love to go for - I think it's an external ad beause they don't think there's anyone internal who would go for it or be suitable for it, but I would really love to do it.

    Does anyone know if I can apply for it while I'm on maternity leave?

  2. Yes of course.

    I went to an interview once and one of the other candidates was an internal who was currently on maternity leave.

    Good luck.
