To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how much his Department spent in total on external recruitment consultants in (a) 2019, (b) 2020 and (c) 2021; how many full time equivalent posts were filled as a result of that expenditure; and how many of those posts were filled by individuals recruited from outside the civil service.

This information is not held. Recruitment costs are tracked but Consultancy fees form only a small part of this total. It is not possible to disaggregate and isolate Recruitment Consultancy fees only. Our recruitment systems do not record candidate attraction methodology so we are unable to disaggregate recruitment data to analyse campaign success by Consultancies.
