Consultation description

The government wants to open up public sector recruitment, to ensure that the best people can be hired for the job.

This call for evidence is to gather information on the use of internal-only recruitment in the public sector, including whether it is ever ineffectively or inappropriately used. We are also seeking views on the role for government in encouraging more open recruitment.
