The Department does not hold any data on the socio-economic background of people appointed to senior positions.

The Civil Service is currently looking at the best way to start implementing the measures published earlier in June across Government Departments, to better understand the background of people appointed in senior positions. The Government is committed to social mobility, and we are committed to creating an organisation in which everybody can thrive.
