The information requested is set out in the tables at the link.  

It should be noted that my Department has had several changes in function during the period from 2014 to date.  The figures include staff who subsequently moved to the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment and the Department of Rural and Community Development as a result of those changes of functions. The total numbers of full time equivalent staff that transferred under these transfers of functions was 141.38. 

All staff were recruited on a full-time basis but can subsequently apply for alternative, non full-time working patterns under the Civil Services' family friendly working practices.
