The 175 roles referenced in the previous answer of 20 March 2019 formed the basis of a ‘tranche’ of potential matches for DFID to consider. DFID has provisionally matched to over half of these and are focussing on progressing these matches into actual deployments as appropriate. The work to match and deploy to cross-government priorities is iterative and likely to continue in the immediate future, as DFID continues to support other government departments with increased demands.
