Achieving equality and diversity in our workforce is important to us. We want to respect others, and be a sensitive and understanding employer. We think that when people can be themselves they perform better and it helps us to better reflect the community we serve. We're committed to:
Eliminating discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
Advancing equality of opportunity and improving the diversity make up of our workforce.
Raising employees' awareness of equality and diversity and the inclusivity of our organisation.
We welcome job applications from everyone and they are considered on the person's ability to do the job. We accept applications in Braille, audio tape/disc and in a variety of different languages. Details of our vacancies are on myjobscotland; each job advert provides details of how to request an alternative application pack.
When you apply for a job with us, we ask you to consider providing separate equalities monitoring information such as your gender, ethnicity, whether you have a disability, your sexual orientation and religion or belief. Giving us this information is voluntary and entirely confidential and if there's something you don't want to provide, you can choose not to disclose that information. We use this information to analyse the diversity of job applicants and assess our recruitment practices. We publish our recruitment statistics and workforce profile information not only to help us meet our legal duties but in assessing any actions we can take to best support our workforce and address any areas of underrepresentation. You can find more information on the information we publish on our Employee Diversity Information page
