Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold the information you require.

We do not use recruitment agencies for operational staff or permanent roles, and therefore there are no such costs. If you are interested in any such costs associated with Non-Permanent Labour (NPL), please let me know.
