The information you have requested is not held centrally therefore we are not in a position to provide this for particular groups of staff.
The Department for Exiting the European Union now has over 650 staff. The Department continues to recruit the brightest and the best from across the civil service, the wider public sector and the private sector, in a range of professions, including the Government Economics Service (GES). The Department also coordinates the work of specialist economists from across the whole of Government on exit related policy. This ensures that it draws together the expertise and specific relevant knowledge required to deliver the Department’s objectives to secure the best possible deal on the United Kingdom’s departure from the EU, and build a deep and comprehensive future partnership between the UK and the EU.
