Almost 300 People Employed By OFMDFM

A TOTAL of 284 people work in the Office of First Minister and Deputy First Minister, it has been revealed today.

In an Assembly answer to a question from TUV Leader, Jim Allister, Arlene Foster and Martin McGuinness also provided information on where they were employed.

The largest group is the 36 people working in “Finance and Corporate Services” followed by the 30 who were described as providing “support for the Executive”.

The figures come after several years of claims that the Office of First Minister and Deputy First Minister has more employees than the Cabinet Office in the UK.
