To ask the Scottish Government how many agency staff there are at its Social Security (a) Directorate and (b) Agency.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 30 April 2018
The Social Security Agency will not employ any staff until it goes live later this year. For reporting purposes temporary agency staff and temporary contract staff are recorded as contingent workers. As of end March 2018 the number of Full Time Equivalent contingent workers in (a) Directorate was 22 and (b) Social Security Agency Implementation Division was 10.
