Dear Rebecca
 
Further to your request of 4 July 2017 under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000, we have reviewed the information that we hold that falls within
the scope of your request and set out our response below.
 

Request: HEFCW response:
 
The number of full-time posts (permanent and fixed term) 2
that are 'Welsh Essential' on the job description
The number of part-time posts (permanent and fixed term) 0
that are 'Welsh Essential'  on the job description
The number of full-time posts (permanent and fixed term) 2
that are 'Welsh Desirable'  on the job description
The number of part-time posts (permanent and fixed term) 1
that are 'Welsh Desirable' on the job description
The number of full-time posts (permanent and fixed term)
that have no language skill requirement included on the 34
job description
The number of part-time posts (permanent and fixed term)
that have no language skill requirement included on the 8
job description

 
Additional information:
HEFCW is currently reviewing all job descriptions when changes occur and
including a Welsh language skill statement as applicable. Management Board
has agreed that all posts should have “Welsh language skill desirable” as
a minimum, therefore all 34 posts will ultimately be Welsh desirable.
 
 
I hope this is helpful to you, but please contact me if you have any
further queries.
