potentially eligible for and the procedure for awarding these;

staff development for HR staff.

7. Details of any institution-wide, centrally administered staff

Dear Andy Coulter,

Thank you for your response and apologies for not replying earlier, but I would still like to receive the information I requested about salary levels within the HR function. I appreciate your reasoning for not giving me the exact salary perhaps indicating which of the following salary bands the role falls within would suffice both our needs.
£15-20k
£20-25k
£25-30k
£30-35k
£35-40k
etc...
I shall be grateful if you would reconsider your decision in light of the above.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Smith

Andy Coulter, Motherwell College
