Is it possible to disclose the extent the compliance and enforcement team has grown over the last two years? Can you also detail where in the main have the new members been recruited from?


Duty to confirm or deny whether TPR holds the information requested

I can confirm that we hold some of the information you have requested.

Information we are able to supply

The size of the compliance and enforcement team for the period January 2014 to January 2016 is shown below:

  • January 2014 - 33
  • January 2016 - 83

These figures are collated from the end of the month.

Information we are not able to supply and why

We cannot provide detail on where the candidates have been recruited from or their background, because we do not record or report this information.

We retain recruitment records for a short period of six months, but beyond this we have no periodic record. Therefore we cannot give you a quantifiable account of where candidates have been recruited from.

Duty to provide advice and assistance

I am mindful of the duty to provide advice and assistance to requesters, as far as it is reasonably practicable to do so. You may find it helpful to use the links below to view our organisational chart and details on jobs at The Pensions Regulator (TPR), which include teams and roles, along with other information about our recruitment.
