Our recruitment records indicate that there have been 2698 appointments to DWP by exception since April 2010. The majority (2089) of these were short-term appointments (for up to a maximum of two years). The remainder included secondments, re-appointments, the recruitment of disabled individuals and nine were short-term appointments at Senior Civil Service (SCS) level. As the information constitutes sensitive personal data the Department is unable to disclose the names of the individuals recruited by exception.
