Dear Wigan Borough Council,
The question is around international recruitment. Now that we have a temporary immigration cap to the UK organisations have to apply to the Home Office to get an allocation of how many people the organisation can recruit from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in a given time period. I have two questions on this subject:
Does your organisation have such an allocation and if so how many people are you allowed to hire from outside of the EEA? What is the start and end date for the time period which this allocation covers?
How much of your allocation have you used?
Can you give me a breakdown of the types of staff that you have hired in the last 12 months from abroad, what countries they have originated from and their current job title.
