There will be at least 750 roles based at the Darlington economic campus, with the Treasury expecting to provide up to 300 of these. The Treasury’s workforce in Darlington will be made up of existing staff who voluntarily relocate from London in their existing roles and people who are recruited directly to the campus. The expression of interest process remains open for existing Treasury staff who wish to move, and relocations are taking place on a gradual basis. Almost all Treasury roles are advertised as available in Darlington, and we have launched a series of recruitment campaigns exclusively for Darlington based Treasury roles. We are working at pace to establish the campus as quickly as possible and will publish details of relocations and recruitment in HMT’s 21/22 annual report and accounts.
