Overseas posts loans

The request was partially successful.

Dear Foreign and Commonwealth Office,

1. Please can you list how many staff were recruited on loan for overseas posts both on (a) level grade and (b) temporary promotion specifically from outside of the FCO in the years 2018 - 2019?

2. With a breakdown by numbers and % of which other areas of the civil service the staff were loaned from to go specificially into overseas posts for the FCO.

3. If you are able to do so, I would also appreciate what countries by number/percentage the above posts were for.

Yours faithfully,

George Cross

Dear FOI-DPA PMCS (Sensitive),

To redefine my request for you - it relates to UK based civil servants from Departments OUTSIDE of the FCO who have been loaned from their departments to go abroad in an FCO role compared to existing UK based staff ALREADY in the FCO who went out to posts abroad on loan. Divided between those on level grade and temporary promotion.

With statistics relating to which departments these candidates came from.

For the year 2018 and the year 2019. If you cannot do both, 2019 please.

Hope that makes it clear.

Yours sincerely,

George Cross
