There are a number of officers in the Department acting in different roles who are on different payscales to the standard civil service. However, they are employed on secondment arrangements whereby they hold the payscale they are properly entitled to in their parent Department or Organisation. The Department does not have any civil servants who are employed directly by the Department on lower payscales to their colleagues.
