Please note the service does not specifically use non-disclosure agreements for the purpose of preventing disclosure. However where there is a reason for a mutually agreed exit from the organisation or role, the Service will put in place a Settlement Agreement, which contains as a standard clause, a non-disclosure agreement. The Service is committed to having an open and inclusive culture where any wrongdoing is reported and appropriate action taken, in accordance with our Core Values.
