What is the Mutual Agreed Resignation Scheme (MARS)?

MARS is a scheme under which an individual PSC civil servant, in agreement with their Department/Board or Office and the Public Services Commission, Civil Service, chooses to leave employment in return for a severance payment. A Mutually Agreed Resignation (MAR) is not a compulsory redundancy or a voluntary redundancy, which is currently covered by Section B of the Public Services Commission Civil Service Regulations 2015.
