To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence the number of full-time and part-time civil servants his Department has recruited by grade in each of the years 2014 to 2018 and to date in 2019; the number of full-time and part-time civil servants his Department has lost due to retirement by grade in the same period; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [41815/19]
My Department recruits staff for full-time positions. However, a range of reduced attendance schemes, which are available to established civil servants, are availed of members of the staff of my Department. Therefore, some of those retiring will be working a reduced attendance pattern and are shown as part-time in the second table at the link. The first table shows the staff recruited in my Department and the second table shows the number of full-time and part-time staff who retired from my Department from 2014 until 9 October 2019.
