To make this process easier for all concerned, we agreed to draft up a 
Hiring Opportunities Questionnaire for all Centres to fill in (see my

Please check the first Draft below (the one for each Centre to fill in) 
to make sure there's nothing important I have missed out!

Can you get back to me with any proposed amendments by Wednesday 5pm?
