The Department for International Trade received support from external recruitment consultants for three Senior Civil Servant recruitment campaigns in 2021. The total cost of this support was £84,568.75. This support is used for when the department is looking to recruit for roles that require a niche skillset, or when it is difficult to attract external candidates.

No external recruitment consultant support was received for recruitment at other grades.
