Equal opportunities information

We are committed to working towards equal opportunities.

Our aim is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and given an equal opportunity, both in gaining employment and employment practices, regardless of their sex, race, age, disability, sexuality, marital status, religion or socioeconomic factor. 

We employ up to1050 employees, depending on the time of year.

Equal opportunities monitoring

In order to assist the council in its legal duty of monitoring information on equal opportunities, applicants for jobs are requested to complete and return an equal opportunities monitoring form together with their job application form. The short listing and interview panel do not have access to the information on the form.

Equalities scheme

It is also our duty to ensure that all services are accessible to the whole community.  We are currently undertaking an impact assessment programme in order to achieve those aims.
