Recruitment monitoring

As an equal opportunities employer, monitoring of recruitment and selection is an essential part of good management practice, and is required under the Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000. It is endorsed by the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Commission for Racial Equality, in order to ascertain whether equality of opportunity is being achieved.

We are unable to process applications from candidates who do not complete this recruitment monitoring information.

Our equal opportunities policy demonstrates a commitment to job applicants and those involved in staff selection that the recruitment process will be conducted as fairly and consistently as possible. With this in mind, all stages of the recruitment process will be monitored. These responses will be separated from your application upon receipt.
