Recruitment Agency Spend

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Cardiff University,

Please could you provide me with the total value of spend on staff recruitment agencies, which agencies were used, and how much was spent with each agency for the academic years 2016/2017, 2017/2018 and this academic year 2018/19 (to date). I would appreciate it if you could report spending separately for each academic year.

Yours faithfully,

Nicky Michaels
