Dear Mr Hai 
Thank you for your email dated 2 May in which you ask for access to the following under the Freedom of 
Information Act 2000 (‘FoI Act’): 
‘What policies do you have in place to do with the recruitment of new staff during the pandemic? 
How will interviews be conducted?’ 

There has been no change to the Bank of England’s (the ‘Bank’) recruitment policy during the pandemic 
and recruitment continues.  
Interviews are conducted remotely using phone or video conferencing.  
Yours sincerely 
Marc Obiols 
Information Access Team
