The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has a personnel information system which holds staff records and therefore DCLG is aware of the age breakdown of its workforce.
There is no default age for retirement for staff below the senior civil service grades allowing an individual to continue work providing they receive satisfactory reports and have a good attendance and conduct record.
All staff irrespective of age are encouraged to access the learning portal which is available on their desks via the intranet to help them identify their development needs and select a suitable learning intervention.
Staff of any age may apply to work more flexibly and DCLG currently offers the following wherever practicable:
Working at home
Part year working
Term time working
This is in addition to the normal flexi time arrangements which are also available to all staff.
