The average age of persons in the department is slowly creeping upwards. There should be more opportunity for younger people to join the ranks, perhaps through additional graduates or general entry level positions. Gender balance is quite even, slightly skewed towards more women. Plenty of people from ethnic backgrounds, however the citizen requirement may hold many potential graduates back.
