Quite often in the UK people get 'seconded' into a post like that for a fixed period of time, say 6 months. That way the person gets to try out for real whether they really do or don't like it, they get to advise the powers that be why no one would touch it and if they really do hate it they go back to their original job. I did that very thing when I moved from district nursing into a specialist role in rheumatology, luckily I loved it and made it permanent, but if not I would have gone back to my original job.
