Redundancy and subsequent available roles

After recently being given the news that the company I work for is being reorganised and merged into another company. All employees across the entire business are going through a redundacny process and as such, all roles will cease to exist with replacement roles being made available for those employees wishing to stay with the company. These roles have been advertised to the company as a whole. However the entire Senior Management have all had seperate conversations and been given new roles, without these roles being advertised to the wider company. Is this allowed to happen/legal? The Senior Management are not Directors and from my understanding do not have any different process to follow. Could someone help me understand if this is correct? Thank you!

    Were these Senior Managers given notice their roles are to be made redundant?

    Are these new roles permanent or simply being retained for a period to facilitate the merger of the organisations. Directors generally are the ones to be excess to requirements. Senior managers hold considerable value in their knowledge.

    If the company decided that the senior managers in post were the people who would be the most suitable to be retained, then the company would be within its rights to offer them new roles.

    It is entirely normal for roles  in a restructure  to be restricted to  a banding / rank/ grade  or  two   ( or current grade and one down with protection and a requirement to apply for anythign in current  grade when it comes up)
