The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs have had 17 senior staff leave the Department since May 2010. 11 of these have left following retirement, (five of which recently left under our early retirement scheme), two have resigned, two have transferred to other Government Departments and a further two have left as their Fixed Term Appointments have expired.

No contractual or non-contractual payments were made to these leavers on normal retirement, resignation or end of FTA, other than their final salary and any outstanding annual leave that they may have had. However, for those staff that left the Department under our early retirement scheme, they received a lump sum payment as part of the terms of the scheme.
