Agency Staffing

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear South Yorkshire Probation Trust,

I am compiling a report on agency spend in the Probation Service. Please kindly provide me with the following information;

The number of locum/temporary/agency Probation Officers for each calendar month of 2012 i.e.
January 2012 5 Probation Officers

The number of locum/temporary/agency Probation Service Officers for each calendar month of 2012 i.e.
January 2012 5 Probation Service Officers

The total monthly fees paid to recruitment agencies for each calendar month of 2012 i.e.
January 2012 £100,000 paid to agencies.

Your help in this matter is very much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Salter

Dear Mr Salter

Thank you for your request. I answered a very similar request a few weeks
ago and am copying the answer to that for you below.  The timeframe of the
request was the financial (rather than calendar) year, but none of the
agency staff were POs or PSOs. If I were to give you a monthly breakdown
for the 3rd question it would only be for support staff, which you seem
not to be interested in.

·         How many agency staff were employed by the South Yorkshire
Probation Trust in the Financial Year 2012-2013?
        4
·         How much did the South Yorkshire Probation Trust spend on agency
staff in the Financial Year 2012-2013?
                £ 91,502 (Forecasted remaining weeks of financial year)
·         What is the forecasted spend for Agency Staff for the Financial
Year of 2013-2014?
                 None forecast
·         Does the South Yorkshire Probation Trust have a contract to
supply temporary staff in place currently? If so who is contracted to
supply temporary staff?
                 No
·         Does the South Yorkshire Probation Trust operate any Preferred
Supplier Agreement for agency staff? If so when is this due to be
retendered?
                 No
·         Has the South Yorkshire Probation Trust used any employment
agency to fill any permanent  vacancies in the financial year 2011-2012
Note: [I think this was a typo and we actually gave the figure for
2011-12]? If so, how much was spent on agency finders fee’s and which
agencies were used to supply staff?
                  £4,709.89        Hawkins Thompson Ltd
·         Does the South Yorkshire Probation Trust have any signed Terms
of Business in place with any employment agencies for the supply of
permanent  staff? If so, who are terms of business or contracts in place
with?
        No

Please let me know if this satisfies your request or if you wish to
re-frame your questions.

Best wishes
