As of 1 October 2014, the number of civilians working in the Ministry Of Defence and its Trading Funds aged 65 and over was around 1,400.

It is the Department's policy to be an all-inclusive employer. Any form of unfair discrimination or harrassment on the grounds of an individual's gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marital status, age, non-standard working pattern or any other difference is totally unacceptable and therefore not tolerated in the workplace.
