To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many vacancies there are in each office of the Identity and Passport Service; and how many jobs in each office are being advertised.

As part of the civil service recruitment freeze, there is no external recruitment of staff. Only existing civil servants can be recruited. As at 21 November 2011 the Identity and Passport Service (IPS) was actively recruiting for 114 vacancies, broken down as follows:

52 non-operational vacancies, largely based in London;

62 operational vacancies, of which:

five to be based at the new Newport Customer Service Centre, six to replace natural turnover largely at the Peterborough area processing centre and records office,

51 to be based around the country at a number of different interview offices and flexible teams.

Of these, we currently have 31 advertisements covering 64 of the vacancies on the civil service jobs website for existing civil servants only with the remainder having proceeded to the post application stages.
