What are the risk points? Do you have an account on their mail server

I don't have an email account supplied by the employer. It would be
sent from one of my private accounts. My main email provider offers
nothing more than 'Password, transmitted insecurely'. Another account
does provide SSL/TLS, but I really didn't want them linking that
particular account to me!

That's a strange account that doesn't support SSL/TLS. Well, as someone
else mentioned, put it online somewhere and provide a link. Google
Drive will do what you want.

That one made me laugh. Is there anything in the universe that offers less privacy than google tools?

Send it per whatsapp, they claim to offer end-to-end encryption :-)
