Civil service job descriptions, 50,000 cut to 50

Home affairs minister Guusje ter Horst is to cut the number of national civil service job descriptions from 50,000 to 50, she told MPs on Wednesday.

The revamped jobs will make the civil service more efficient and flexible because civil servants will no longer be able to object to being moved to a new department, the minister said.
The minister is also in the process of cutting the number of civil service jobs by some 12,800.
