Congratulations Rufus on the JISC funding.

It would be strongly preferable for this funding to flow from JISC->OKFN->Rufus (with appropriate contracts in place between the parties). I'm surprised that JISC are not insisting on this. Would it be problematic for them?

Sorry I missed the discussion about a PA (which sounds entirely sensible), but why would s/he be engaged by you rather than OKFN?

Age and family status are of course entirely irrelevant to a hiring decision - and it would be illegal discrimination for either to play any part in the decision.
