Dear General Medical Council,

I am writing to request some information under the Freedom of
Information Act.

The questions relate to Employment References and HR resources.

1. Which department/person(s) deals with Employment References at
your company (or the name of company if outsourced)?

2. What is the average annual salary of the person(s) dealing with
Job References? (If outsourced, how much do you pay annually for
this service?)

3. How are Employment References requested for new starters? How
are they chased up? (email/telephone/postal service/fax)

4. How are Employment References completed for ex-employees
(email/telephone/postal service/fax)?

5. How many hours (on average) does your company (or the outsourced
company) spend, each month, requesting and chasing employment
references for new starters?

6. How many hours (on average) does your company spend(or the
outsourced company), each month, completing employment references
for leavers?

7. How many leavers (on average) does your company have per month?

8. How many starters (on average) does your company have per month?

Many thanks in advance for your help with this matter, it is very
much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Lisa Hobson
