Departmental Manpower

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 23 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government when the Career Transition Centre (CTC) was established in his Department's headquarters; how many (a) full-time and (b) part-time staff of each (i) grade, (ii) ethnicity and (iii) disability have registered with the CTC; and for how long on average members of each category of staff have been registered with the CTC since it was established. (322708)

The Department's redeployment pool, known as the Career Transition Centre (CTC), was established in central Communities and Local Government in April 2008. It includes staff returning from loans, secondments, and career breaks, as well as those currently without permanent posts due to restructuring.

210 staff have registered with the CTC, 189 of which were (a) full-time and 21 were (b) part-time staff. The following table shows the breakdown of these figures in terms of (i) grade (ii) ethnicity and (iii) disability, and the average length of time staff in each category were registered with the CTC. The numbers are small enough in a range of grades for individual staff to be potentially identifiable by their grade and ethnic background. The breakdown is therefore set out in a range of grades.
