We are committed to a policy of equality of opportunity in its employment. This is to ensure that no potential employee or existing member of staff receives less favourable treatment than any other prospective employee, or member of staff, on the grounds of a protected characteristic or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which are not justified in terms of the job to be done. This applies to all aspects of the Council’s employment practices including recruitment, disciplinary and grievance procedures, working terms and conditions including remuneration, redundancy, development appraisal, training for job and career development.
In order to ensure this policy is carried out in practice, it is necessary to monitor our recruitment. This means noting this personal information about all applicants.
Information we ask you to give will be kept confidential to be used for monitoring purposes only. The information will not be used against you in any way and will not be made available to the selection panel during the shortlisting process.
