Dear Royal Veterinary College,

Dear University,

Do you currently have a recruitment agency preferred supplier list in place for non-academic staffing?

If yes when will this be renewed and can you provide contact details for the person who is managing this process?

Please can you provide me with the total value of spend on non academic staff with recruitment agencies, which agencies were used, and how much was spent with each agency for the academic year 2022/2023 for each department within the university for temporary, fixed term and permanent recruitment.

Yours faithfully,

Amy Mary
