All applicants will be treated equally and fairly throughout the recruitment and selection process.

All decisions will be made in line with our Recruitment and Selection Policy and will be made on merit, in line with the job and skills requirements set for the vacancy.

Positive Action

We will try to address any issues of under representation through positive action. 'Positive action' relates to the steps that we can take to encourage people from groups with different needs or with a past track record of disadvantage or low participation to apply for jobs.

In recruitment, equality law allows positive action before or at the application stage; for example, we could encourage particular groups to apply.
