The Department uses recruitment agencies to support permanent appointments to the Senior Civil Service (SCS). The table below shows the number of SCS appointments that have been made where a recruitment agency was involved, for each financial year since 2010-11.
2014 to date
It should be noted that the above information does not include recruitment numbers for our executive agencies.
Below SCS level, recruitment agencies are only used for components of a recruitment exercise eg. advertising, sifting or assessment tests.
