Equal opportunities

Diversity is good for the council. Employing people from different backgrounds and with a range of different experiences helps us to serve our customers better.

We welcome applications from people regardless of age, gender reassignment, sex, sexual orientation, disability, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief.


We endeavour to ensure our recruitment process is fair for everyone. If you have a disability and need an adjustment made to any part of the process please do let us know. We make adjustments on an individual basis to help individuals do their best.

Some examples of types of adjustments we can make:

  • If you have dyslexia and need extra time during assessments
  • If you use sign language we will make an interpreter available for your interview
  • If you use a wheelchair or have limited mobility we can ensure your interview takes place in an accessible room
  • If you have back pain and need to stretch we can provide breaks in an interview

We welcome applications from disabled people and offer guaranteed interviews to disabled candidates who meet our essential criteria for the job. If you would prefer not to apply online, more information about alternative methods of application is available on our Jobs with the council website.

We are proud to be recognised as a Positive about Disabled People employer. We have also launched disability awareness training for all our staff.
