According to the draft state budget for next year, the Czech government announced plans to create 8,683 new jobs across the public administration in 2023. Most new jobs (6,264) will be created in education. The Ministry of Defense will hire 1,215 new employees and the Ministry of Interior will add 1,204 new positions. On the other hand, the cabinet intends to dismiss 732 civil servants, mainly in the areas of finance and healthcare. The Ministry of Finance is to reduce the number of positions by 360 and the Ministry of Health plans to cut 290 jobs. In total, the state will spend CZK 264 billion (€10.760 billion) on the salaries of civil servants next year.

A few months ago, the National Budget Council drew attention to the issue of steadily growing number of employees in the state administration and the entire public sector.
