At a time when jobs are being cut and people are being made redundant, unions like to push employers into deals that offer the maximum opportunity of re-settlement to staff being shown the door. They usually seek an agreement limiting external recruitment. If the NUJ think they've got such a deal in BBC News, it looks like they're wrong. Here's an extract from a reply to a Freedom of Information enquiry this week.

"As at 30 September 2015, the BBC employed 7,393 staff on continuing or fixed-term contracts across the whole News division (including English Regions and Global News & World Service).

"During the period 17 October 2014 and 17 October 2015, of all the vacancies handled by BBC HR Direct recruitment, 243 external candidates were hired within the News division. This compares to 1,178 who were classed as internal hires."
