The Department is working with the Beyond Whitehall programme and wider Government initiatives to create and relocate policy roles outside of London in a managed, sustainable way.

We are reviewing our presence across the UK, as well as increasing inclusivity in policy making, so policy is inclusive of the citizens it represents.

In consultation with the Cabinet Office and trade unions, we will shortly agree a strategy for delivering more job opportunities outside London.
