Thank you Graham and Simon for telling us about your involvement in the interviews. I know that the staff at Wathwood will read this as they receive e-mail alerts for all the postings about their services. They have already mentioned in an earlier posting just how much they value your inpuut.

This is what they said about the interviews.

We have a good working relationship with ERIF and they have been to Wathwood previously to help in our interview process.
