All staff that join, do so on assignment, loan or secondment from other government
bodies, who remain the employers.</p><p> </p><p>EU Exit is an all-of-government operation.
The Department for Exiting the European Union is responsible for overseeing negotiations
to leave the EU and establishing the future relationship between the UK and EU. The
Department for International trade works to secure UK and global prosperity by promoting
and financing international trade and investment, and championing free trade.</p><p>
</p><p>Departments continually review workforce plans, reprioritise and assess changing
needs, which includes identification and cessation of non-priority work where appropriate.
We have accelerated our plans, and at the same time, the Civil Service as a whole
is working to ensure that EU Exit Implementation is carried out to high quality without
impacting public service delivery across the whole of government.</p>
