Could you please advise me:
How many staff are employed in the SOJ Communications unit?
How is that broken down in terms of full time / part time and so on?
The annual cost of this unit, including expenses, to the tax payer for the last three years?
The Communications Unit based within the Chief Minister’s Department has three staff members, two of whom are dedicated communications officers. In addition there is a Assistant Director for Ministerial Support and Communications, part of whose role covers communication matters.
Of the two dedicated members of staff, one is full-time and one is part-time.
The annual budget for the Communications Unit for 2015 and preceding years is recorded in the States Financial Report and Accounts.
For example, the 2015 figure can be found on page 23 of the following link. The figures include the original budget and the actual spend.
