Equal opportunities

We are committed to equal opportunities. We are a part of the Disability Confident scheme.

Disability Confident scheme 

We welcome applications from disabled people and guarantee to interview applicants, for jobs at the council, who have a disability and meet the essential requirements for the job.  

When filling in an application form you will have the option to tell us if you are applying under the Disability Confident scheme. 

Equalities impact assessments 

We use equality impact assessments (EqIAs) to identify the positive and negative impacts of a particular policy or strategy on equality and help us to identify actions which will build on the positive and mitigate the negative impacts.
