Home Office staff job titles is not held centrally and would require significant manual collation and manipulation of local data, so could only be retrieved with disproportionate effort.

The Government is auditing the cost-effectiveness of all activities that support the equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) of the workforce, through the review of EDI spending announced last June.

As stated in the Autumn Statement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Minister for Cabinet Office will be outlining the final proposals in response to the review in due course.
