The Cabinet Office has a flexible operating model, employing a mix of staff on permanent contracts, loans in from other government departments, fixed-term appointments, and contractors supplied via third party agencies. All areas of work that have long term requirements use a mix of staff to meet their objectives, including those on temporary fixed-term contracts. As at May 2016, there were 588 staff on fixed term contracts in the Cabinet Office.
