Including the following information: Previous Grade and Salary; Reason for leaving; Amount paid out for redundancy or other arrangement; Gap between employee leaving the service of the council and returning as a Consultant; Fee as Consultant

Yours faithfully,

Dear FOI Officer,

Re RFI 1710079

By 'Consultant', I mean External Consultants that have worked at the council for a fee, rather than those staff who are employees of the council, or agency staff.
This Wikipedia entry on Consultants, including the paragraph on External Consultants, may be of some use:
