My Department was established on 28 June 2007. The costs paid to recruitment consultants and for external recruitment advertising for senior civil service (SCS) recruitment from 28 June 2007 to the end of the financial year was £213,343. The recruitment consultants employed for these purposes were all drawn from the Cabinet Office Framework agreement.

The costs for vacancies below SCS level are not recorded in the form requested and figures could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

The Department has no agencies.
