80. To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence the number of new staff recruited to his Department from January 2019 to date; the title of each employment position; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [53640/19]
To date in 2019, my Department has recruited 40 civil servants through a combination of the Public Appointment Service, Civil Service Mobility and secondment from other areas of the public service. These staff were recruited primarily to replace staff who left my Department through retirement, resignation, promotion or secondment to another area of the public sector. The staff recruited were at the civil service grades of Assistant Principal, Higher Executive Officer, Executive Officer, Clerical Officer (both permanent and temporary) and Services Officer.
