In the period since 1 January 2010 two retired public servants have been engaged on a temporary basis as civilian employees. One of the persons concerned was engaged initially in 2008 under a fixed-term contract following an open recruitment competition. This person's contract was extended for a further period in 2011. The other person was engaged on a part-time basis under a fixed-term contract to fill a key position pending the recruitment of a permanent appointee. This person's contract has now expired.
