How many UK public servants currently volunteer overseas?

0

Only around 350 UK public servants per year take up such assignments, from a public service of some four million. They tend to be in early or career or pre-retirement, rather than in mid-career. There are many individual obstacles, but one universal one is pensions. Volunteers usually have either to resign or take an unpaid career break, and unless the employer chooses to pay pensions contributions during the absence, they face a pensions gap that will reduce their benefits at retirement.
