Equal opportunities and discrimination policy
We recognise that discrimination is not only unacceptable, it is also unlawful. Our aim is to ensure that no job applicant or employee is discriminated against, directly or indirectly, on any unlawful grounds. This policy is also included in the Employee Handbook to make all employees aware that we will act in accordance with all statutory requirements and take into account any relevant codes of practice. All job applicants will be considered solely on their ability to do the job. Interview questions will not be of a discriminatory nature. All promotions will be made on merit in line with the principles of the policy. Employees who have a disability will receive the necessary help, within reason, to enable them to carry out their normal duties effectively. This policy will be assessed at regular intervals to ensure that equality of opportunity is afforded to all employees.

Equal opportunities monitoring
As part of our commitment to equality of opportunity, we need to obtain information about the ethnic origins and sex of our employees and job applicants. This information enables us to examine, by ethnic origin and sex, the distribution of employees across the organisation, and the success rate of candidates for jobs, training, transfer and promotion, according to the type of job. We hope that employees and job applicants will co-operate by completing the information overleaf, which will help us to assess whether the distribution of employees and the success rate of applicants reflects equal opportunities or reveals possible race or sex discrimination. Any information provided will be kept confidential and will only be used for the purposes detailed above.

Declaration for the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Regulated Positions)
The post for which you are applying is a regulated position. It is a criminal offence for a disqualified person to apply to work in a regulated position. The post is also exempt from the provisions of Section 4(2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, by virtue of the Exceptions Order 1975 as amended. This means that all convictions, including those that are “spent” under the terms of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, but excluding those that are “protected” under the Exceptions Order, will be made known to us. The information provided will be taken into account in deciding whether to make an appointment or not. It will be completely confidential and will be considered only in relation to this application. If your application is successful you will be required to co-operate with us in obtaining a Disclosure of criminal convictions from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
Statement on the recruitment of ex-offenders

Introduction
As an organisation using the Disclosure and Barring Service’s (DBS) checking service to assess applicants’ suitability for positions of trust, we comply fully with the Code of Practice and undertake to treat all applicants for positions fairly. We undertake not to discriminate unfairly against any subject of a DBS check on the basis of a conviction or other information revealed. We are committed to the fair treatment of our employees, potential employees and users of our services, regardless of their offending background.

Policy
We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications and experience. A DBS check is only requested after a thorough risk assessment has indicated that one is both proportionate and relevant to the position concerned. For those positions where a DBS check is required, all application forms, job adverts and recruitment briefs will contain a statement that a DBS check will be requested in the event of the individual being offered the position. Where a DBS check is to form part of the recruitment process, we encourage all applicants called for interview to provide details of their criminal record at an early stage in the application process. We request that this information is sent under separate, confidential cover, to a designated person within the organisation and we guarantee that this information will only be seen by those who need to see it as part of the recruitment process. Unless the nature of the position allows us to ask questions about your entire criminal record, we only ask about ‘unspent’ convictions as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. We ensure that all those who are involved in the recruitment process have been suitably trained to identify and assess the relevance and circumstances of offences. We also ensure that they have received appropriate guidance and training in the relevant legislation relating to the employment of ex-offenders, e.g. the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. At interview, or in a separate discussion, we ensure that an open and measured discussion takes place on the subject of any offences or other matter that might be relevant to the position. Failure to reveal information that is directly relevant to the position sought could lead to withdrawal of an offer of employment. This policy document is made available to all DBS applicants at the outset of the recruitment process and we make every subject of a DBS check aware of the existence of the Code of Practice and make a copy available on request. We undertake to discuss any matter revealed in a DBS check with the person seeking the position before withdrawing a conditional offer of employment.
