Departmental Manpower

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether the post of Director General Safety and Security in his Department is a full-time appointment. (277521)

Following a change in naming convention, the position of Director Business Resilience replaced that of Director General Security and Safety; it is a full-time post. In keeping with civil service policy on promoting work force diversity and alternative working patterns, full-time positions can be filled by one or more individuals with flexible-working contracts, provided the Department is satisfied that the key outputs of the post can be maintained. The Director Business Resilience post is currently filled on this basis.
