Whatever your age, gender, disability status, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity or family circumstances, we make it our business to make sure you’re treated with fairness and respect.

Our recruitment process

As an employer, we collect and maintain records on areas of equality, diversity and inclusion, so we can consider the needs of people in their day to day work. These areas are:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

Basically, all areas covered in the Equality Act.

This means we’ll ask you for some of this information when you apply for a job with us. We do this to make sure discrimination does not happen.

The information you give us is held confidentially and not used to select applicants for jobs. All applicants are judged on their ability to do the job for which they are applying. The information is collated for monitoring purposes only and will be separated from your application details.

If you’d prefer not to answer, that’s fine – the reason we ask is because we want to ensure that you have the opportunity to shine as an applicant, that we’re being fair and that you have a great overall candidate experience.

If you tell us you have a disability and you meet the essential requirements of the post, you will be offered an interview for the job.
