Government employees spread across over 100 offices

Wed, 14 Feb 2018

The Government insists it's committed to rationalising its property portfolio after it was revealed Government employees are based at over 100 offices across the Island.

Policy and Reform Minister Chris Thomas confirmed in this week's sitting of the House of Keys that 107 locations have 10 or more directly employed Government workers.

The Department of Health and Social Care has the most sites with 30, while the Department of Infrastructure has staff based at 20 locations.

A number of buildings host workers from multiple departments, including Markwell House in Douglas, Port Erin Fire Station and Government Office.

After the figures were revealed, the Government reiterated that it's working to move all staff into Government-owned buildings in the next four years.

Since 2011, the Government has generated over £16m in property and land sales and saved £2.3m in rent by moving out of leasehold properties.
