Waiting for an internal review by University Centre Somerset of their handling of this request.

Dear Somerset College of Arts and Technology,

Can you please provide me with your spend for permanent recruitment
over the last 12 months split by advertising, agency fees (please
confirm agency used), transfer fees, training etc.

Yours faithfully,

Liz Hurst,

Dear Kate Wogel

I am unable to respond to your question accurately, as we do not hold the
information in the way that you require.

I can confirm that we have used  Versutus, Morgan Hunt, JJ Fox,  AOC
Create Ltd, Dakota 6 Ltd,  Protocol, Hays Recruitment, FE Associates,
Office Angels, Reed over the last 12 months.

However this is not solely for permanent recruitment.  We do not maintain
an analysis of the basis of the recruitment of the fee (i.e. whether
advertising, agency fees, transfer fees, training etc.).

If you are not satisfied with the reply then you should address complaints
to the College’s Quality Improvement Coordinator, at the address below,
within 21 days.  The complaint will then be dealt with in accordance with
the College’s General Complaints or Grievance Procedures as appropriate.

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the complaints procedure, they
may seek an independent review from the Information Commissioner. 
Requests for review from the Information Commissioner should be made in
writing to:

The Information Commissioner, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,

Dear Liz Hurst,

Do you have a rough estimate on what you have spent in the last 12months on recruitment agencies?

Yours sincerely,

kate wogel

Liz Hurst,

Dear Kate Wogel

I will attempt to do this, but the answer will not be available until next
week, due to staff absences.

As our financial year runs from 1 August to 31 July, it would be easier to
answer the question over the previous year (i.e. 2014/15), or the current
financial year to date (i.e. to the end of May 2016).  Would this suffice?

Regards

Liz
