The current strategy for the public sector is an overriding strategy to modernise, to provide value for money and to provide better customer service. The change initiatives planned as part of the implementation and delivery of the modernisation strategy include flexible working, extending opening hours and becoming individual centered in terms of the life cycle approach to providing services.

The basis for the question of recruitment policy in the public sector is The Public Service Management Recruitment and Appointments Act 2004, which is the foundation of internal and external recruitment in the public sector but specifically the National Partnership Agreement; " Towards 2016".

The framework is specific to The Civil service, The Health Service, The Education Sector and Local Authorities (In this enquiry I exclude The Health Service because of the complexities in this sector).

The hypothesis is to examine whether the policies that will guide all the listed departments for the next ten years with regard to their recruitment, is actually linked to their strategy to modernise and any other strategy that has been identified.
