The Department was created on 28 June 2007. The Department has used three agencies for the provision of its temporary staff (admin and clerical)—Adecco, Reed Employment and Hays Office Support. The contract with Adecco expired on 31 August 2007, when new contracts were established with Reed and Hays.
The number of temporary staff employed by the Department is as follows:
Number July to December 2007 98 January to December 2008 207 January to December 2009 130
July to December 2007
January to December 2008
January to December 2009
We are unable to provide the monetary value of the contracts as this is commercial in confidence.
For a small number of specialist temporary staff and interim managers the Department has used other agencies but information on this could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
