The number of secondments into the Ministry of Justice for 2013-2015 is set out below.

Secondment offers a chance for employees to develop skills and competencies through temporary placement in an external organisation. Secondments into the MOJ allow us to bring in new skills and expertise.

For 2013, the total number of secondment was 58. For 2014 this was 60.

The following caveats to the data should be noted:

  • The Legal Aid Agency (Executive Agency of MoJ) was created on 1st April 2013, previously known as The Legal Services Commission (Non-Departmental Public Body of the MoJ - Public Sector). As a consequence any secondments from the Commission to MoJ would have been changed to Loans into the Department from 1st April 2013.
  • Data on secondment sources that are incomplete are shown as an unknown entry. We are unable to verify if these are actual secondments and they could be defined as loans into the department.
  • As with all HR databases, the data is dynamic and dependent on managers individually maintaining records. In addition, at the time of data extraction, some systems updates may not be reflected in past and future requests such as this.
