Recruitment

Request

Under the Freedom of Information Act I would like to know if you outsource/purchase or use external recruitment or staffing services.

If yes, could you list by any category which recruitment or staffing services are outsourced/purchased or provided externally.

For example:

* Recruitment/Advertising
* Pre application sifting e.g. telephone screening, online questionnaires
* Long-listing application forms
* Assessment services
* Managed recruitment campaigns
* Other, please specify

If it does not exceed the cost and time limits of the freedom of information act, I would also like to know the approximate annual spend on these contracts over each of the last three years, broken down by year (year-end December 31st).
