Civil Servants: West Midlands

Volume 505: debated on Wednesday 3 February 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many job vacancies have been advertised internally under the Civil Service West Midlands Pilot; and what the (a) job title, (b) department and (c) salary range of each was. (315320)

The latest data, up to the end of December 2009, show that 2,252 vacancies have been advertised internally under the Civil Service West Midlands Pilot.

The pilot does not record data for each advertised vacancy on job title and salary range. We can confirm the Departments formally monitored within the pilot are HMRC, DWP, HO, MOJ, MOD and DEFRA, though some other civil service organisations in the region have also advertised vacancies under the scheme.

To date, advertised vacancies have been at civil service grades AA, AO, EO, HEO, SEO, grade 7 and grade 6 with salaries being commensurate with the relevant pay scale for those grades.

The breakdown of vacancies by Department and grade for the period of the pilot until end of December 2009 is:

1 MOD does not provide data in this way; however it is understood to follow a similar pattern across grades at about 50 vacancies per month.
