The Department and its executive agencies have not used the Civil Service Resourcing e-recruitment system.

Of our non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) Cafcass do not recruit staff using name blank CVs or the blind sift function of the civil service e-recruitment system. The Office for the Children's Commissioner (OCC) anonymise CVs/applications but this is done independently of the blind sifting function within the civil service e-recruitment system.
