Please may you provide me with:

Any information regarding the department’s expenditure (incl. total expenditure) on recruitment in the years 2019, 2020, and 2021 in the following areas

If you could also confirm the name and contact (email or phone number) of the Finance Director/Head of Finance of your department(s), it would be greatly appreciated.
Please could the information for each year be in either separate Word documents, or separate Excel sheets.
