Education staff to relocate to DEFA offices in St John's

The education department will move out of its rented Douglas office to share headquarters with another government department later this year.

The Department of Education, Sport and Culture will leave Hamilton House on Peel Road to take up vacant space at the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture's offices in St John's.

Government says it's been encouraging staff to take up flexible working, including working from home, which has freed up desk spaces.

The move is due to get underway in October.
