Most NIO recruitment is currently carried out free of charge by NI Recruitment Service, an agency of the Department of Finance and Personnel. Recruitment consultants are used only where Recruitment Service competitions fail to produce suitable candidates or where executive searches are required to identify suitably skilled and experienced applicants. The following are the total amounts paid by the Northern Ireland Office core Department to recruitment consultants during the calendar years 2000-07. Information prior to 2000 is unavailable.
