Dear Heather Learmonth,
Thank you for your response and apologies for not replying earlier, but I would still like to receive the information I requested about salary levels within the HR function. I appreciate your reasoning for not giving me the exact salaries but perhaps indicating which of the following salary bands the roles fall within would suffice both our needs.
I shall be grateful if you would reconsider your decision in light
of the above.
Please note I am on leave, returning on Wednesday 9 October 2013.
If your message is urgent, please contact Annette McKenna, Principal's PA
at [email address]
Further to your request for additional information, the salary bands for the HR staff in post are:
£40-45k - 1
£25-30k - 2
I hope this meets your request for further information in full
