star this property answer text <p>In each of the years 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14, two staff were directly recruited by the Department via an employment or recruitment agency. No staff have been directly recruited to date in 2014-15.</p><p> </p><p>These figures exclude public appointments and Cabinet Office recruitment. I would note that my previous answer of 2 February 2015, Question 222078, on the number of agencies used, included the recruitment of one public appointment in 2013-14.</p><p> </p><p>My Department has reduced staffing costs from £218 million a year in 2009-10 to £95 million in 2013-14. There is and remains a need to replace staff from general turnover and where we need specific technical skills. We are committed to open recruitment, so we can obtain individual staff with the best expertise from the private sector, the voluntary sector and other parts of the public sector.</p> more like this

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is reducing UK based headcount by 10% in the current Spending Round.</p><p>Recruitment agencies are used to recruit for positions that require specialist skills and expertise not available elsewhere in the organisation. The number of FCO staff who were employed through employment or recruitment agencies from 2010-11 onwards is:</p><p>2010/11 2011/12 2012/13 2013/14 2014/15</p><p>36 11 78 75 16</p><p><br>Recruitment in 2012/13 increased as a result of a need to staff our recently established Corporate Services Centre in Milton Keynes. From 2013/14 onwards the data includes directly recruited summer and graduate interns.</p><p>The FCO also has a separate contract in place with Hays Specialist Recruitment for the provision of temporary staff for essential frontline roles whilst internal recruitment processes take place. The number of temporary staff who were employed through recruitment agencies from 2010-11 onwards, on contracts of varying length, is:</p><p><br>2010/11 2011/12 2012/13 2013/14 2014/15</p><p>19 61 116 59 28</p><p> </p><p> </p>
