To whom it may concern,

This is a request for information through the Freedom of Information Act.
1). Does your university have an active policy in place regarding which companies the careers department does and does not assist in recruiting university members? This may be a policy specific to the careers department, or a wider policy which also applies to the careers department.

For the purpose of this FOI, ‘university members’ includes:
- Current students, both undergraduate and postgraduate
- Alumni and former students of the university

For the purpose of this FOI, ‘recruiting’ refers to any situation, in which the careers department plays a part, where university members are a potential source of employees or volunteers to a third party outside of the university. This includes:
- Events in which the careers department is an organiser
- Digital media controlled by the careers department, including websites, webpages, social media and mailing lists
- Physical materials from the careers department, such as mailings, posters, leaflets and brochures

2). If your university does have an active policy in place regarding which companies the careers department does and does not assist in recruiting university members, please provide a copy of the policy either as an attachment to your response or through the inclusion of a link to where it is published on your website.
If this policy forms a part of a wider policy document, please specify which page we need to refer to in order to locate this information.

3). If your university does not have an active policy in place as outlined above, please can you confirm whether there are any exclusions in place regarding which companies the careers department does and does not assist in recruiting university members. If not in policy form, exclusions might exist in the form of written guidelines or procedures. If any exclusions are in place please list what they are.
Please confirm receipt of this request and we look forward to hearing back from you within the next 20 working days.

Yours sincerely,
Fergus Green

FOI, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

Dear Fergus Green,

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama is a small and specialist higher education institution specialising in the theatre and performance arts. It has approximately 1000 FTE students and 140 FTE staff.

The School does not have a Careers Department. It is therefore a nil response from us.

Yours sincerely,

Abigail Fitch-Hickson

Kind Regards,
Abigail Fitch-Hickson
