Public sector expands

Government taking on more staff

The Island's public sector is growing.

Government's overall workforce expanded by 1.14% between June 2016 and June 2017, to 8,328 people.

That figure covers the length and breadth of public services, including full and part-time employees.

But it does not include workers on zero hour contracts, such as specialist sports coaches and caterers.
