We are committed to the principle of equal opportunities in employment. We aim to ensure that all employees are recruited, trained and promoted according to their ability to fulfil the requirements of their post.
There will be no discrimination on the grounds of, for example, race, colour, creed, ethnic or national origins, nationality, disability, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or family responsibility in any matter relating to employment.
Our process of ethnic monitoring
We have adopted the recommendations of the Code of Practice published by the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Commission for Racial Equality (now the Equality and Human Rights Commission) that employers should regularly monitor the effects of selection decisions to assess whether equality of opportunity is being achieved.
We collect monitoring information relating to the recruitment and deployment of our staff, and of our auditors and reviewers. As we operate on the basis of an academic year, monitoring is undertaken accordingly (August to July).
