On 25 January the Government announced that it wanted to open up public sector recruitment, to ensure that the best people can be hired for the job.

It opened a call for evidence to gather information on the use of internal-only recruitment in the public sector, including where it is ever ineffectively or inappropriately used. It also sought views on the role for government in encouraging more open recruitment.

In informing its response to the call for evidence, CIPD surveyed 374 of its members.
