Career Breaks at the BBC

Karen Galedek made this Freedom of Information request to British Broadcasting Corporation

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please could you inform me of how many career breaks have been applied for across the Vision, A&M, News, MC&A, N&R, BBC People and Global News over the past three years? Please could you break the findings down to demonstrate the total number of applications from each division for each year (June 2006- June 2008), how many of these have been successful, how many unsuccessful and what categories of career break were granted? Where only small numbers of staff are relevant, it is fine to merge those division's annual figures to protect identities as long as this is made clear in the presentation.

Yours faithfully,


FOI Enquiries, British Broadcasting Corporation
