This excludes staff who are based in Courts and Tribunals who do not work directly in a Court and Tribunal such as some HR colleagues that work out of a Court location but are not working in a Court.

We have also excluded staff who would not be covered by selecting the jurisdictional split such as Enforcement, Frontline Support, HQ, Multi jurisdiction, Probate staff and NBC staff. This does not include contractor details because we do not hold this data in our HR data.
