The symbol ~ represents 5 or fewer.
The National Probation Service is part of NOMS: it has no separate headquarters. NOMS headquarters includes NPS staff based there as well as other NOMS staff who provide central support for the NPS. It therefore follows that there were no staff in post or recruits into the NPS headquarters.
Between the 1 June and 30 June 2014, the date of the latest published figures, the number of permanent or temporary staff recruited to the NPS, including any central functions relating to the NPS was five or fewer. In the same period 20 agency staff began working in the operational functions of the NPS.
The NPS and CRCs were resourced to deliver their core duties at the point of transfer to the new structures and will maintain necessary levels through workforce planning to meet future staffing needs.
