Dear Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Recruitment of Senior Managers' as I do not believe it will take a competent member of staff long to extract the requested information from such a small number of recruitment files held, no doubt, in electronically and hardcopy form.

It is in the public interest to know if the best qualified, most competent and experienced people are being recruited into senior manager posts within the Council, through a fair and equal process, rather than there being a situation where by when someone dies or retires or moves on the next in line on the management structure is enabled to fill their position - which is what seems apparent from the information provided so far and a reticence to provide full information.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

Thank you

Bradley Goffard
