|Dutch term or phrase: vastbenoemd, vaste benoeming|
|I am looking for the English translation of the term "vaste benoeming" or the derived verbal form (to be) "vastbenoemd, vast benoemd". A widely pervasive concept in Belgium, the word(s) describe(s) a tenure of office (teachers, civil servants, etc.) in which an employee holds a post with any level of government administration (from local councils, to civil servants working for regional or federal government ministeries or institutions as well as the field of education and public service agencies such as the National Railway Company, etc.) in which he/she has been appointed as "vastbenoemd". Essentially, this means they have job security for life, i.e. they cannot simply be ousted from their post. In addition, a so-called "vaste benoeming" comes with any number of further social benefits which private industry workers do not have.|
It is customary for teachers for example to start their career working on the basis of annual contracts for a number of years before being eligible to become "vast benoemd".
I would be grateful for a concise English term which translates the concept. Thanks very much for your help.
