The information requested by the Deputy regarding to the number of recruitments and retirements from 2014 to date, is set out in the following tables.

My Department uses workforce planning and succession planning to ensure that there are sufficient staffing resources in place to deliver the Department's strategic goals. In the main, staff are recruited to my Department through the Public Appointments Service (PAS) by way of competition.

Vacancies are also filled by way of mobility through the Civil Service Mobility Scheme, internal promotions and secondments from other Government Departments and the public service, which are not reflected in the tables.
