All departments are equipping themselves with the resources they need to get the best deal for the UK. The Department for Exiting the European Union 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 now has over 650 staff based in the UK, plus the expertise of over 120 officials in Brussels. We regularly reviews headcount to ensure we are appropriately resourced 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.
