Information on the nationality of public sector staff within the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) is not held centrally. This could be collected only at disproportionate cost. Information on nationality is included on an individual’s application form, which he/she completes at the start of the recruitment process. This is to ensure that the applicant meets nationality requirements under the civil service recruitment code for employment within MOJ.
