The Annual Report and Accounts 19/20 includes the percentage of Senior Civil Servants from an ethnic minority background.

The Annual Report and Accounts 19/20 shows that the percentage of SCS that are from minority ethnic backgrounds is 9.6% (Core Treasury grade diversity as at 31 March 2020 table on page 98). It also shows that the SCS total FTE is 129.9 (Core Treasury – staff composition at 31 March 2020 FTE table on page 98). Using these numbers, it can be calculated that the number of SCS from this cohort is 12.4 FTE

We cannot provide a breakdown of ethnicity by grade due to the small number of Directors and Director Generals. To do so would risk people being identifiable.
