Dear University of Bedfordshire FOI Team,

Some time ago, I wrote to you about the difficulties of recruiting academic staff from the EU in the current political climate. I am concerned, but hopeful that Bedfordshire has been able to continue to recruit EU staff in significant numbers.

I was wondering if you would be able to tell me:

1) How many new EU academic staff the university has been able to recruit over the last year
2) How many EU academic staff have left the university over the same time period
3) The overall number of EU academic staff currently working at Bedfordshire (this one is less important)

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Matthew Taylor

Dear Matthew,
Thank you for your email.
Apologies, we had a number of staff absences when your FOI came in, and
unfortunately it was missed. We are working to get our response to you as
soon as possible. However, with our staff working from home now due to the
Coronavirus pandemic, not all of our systems are as accessible as they
once were.  We appreciate your patience as we work to respond to FOI
requests in this difficult time.
Kind Regards
Legal Office
