The most recent publication of Civil Service Statistics was released by the Office for National Statistics in October 2016, using data gathered from departments as of 31st March 2016. The latest set of data can be found on the ONS website via this weblink:


The Civil Service is committed to being a place where everyone can thrive, regardless of background - with the aim of becoming the most inclusive employer in the UK.
