Equal opportunities in employment

Printer-friendly page

The Council value and celebrate the diversity that exists within our community and wishes to employ a wide variety of people to reflect the local population that we serve.

The District Council is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from all.

St Albans District Council is an equal opportunity employer and our employment policies are intended to achieve equality of opportunity for all irrespective of ethnic origin, race, colour, sex, sexual orientaion, gender, gender reassignment, disability, age, trade union activity, marital status, civil pertnership status, religion or belief, pregnancy and maternity.

Our Equal Opportunity Employment Policy aims to ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on these grounds, nor is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements, which cannot be shown to be justifiable or are irrelevant to the post.

This applies to all aspects of our employment practices including recruitment and retention, promotion, transfer, training, benefits, facilities, procedures and all terms and conditions of employment.

The Council will take such steps as are appropriate to ensure that this policy remains fully effective.

All the decisions we make relating to employment practices are objective, free from bias and based solely upon work criteria and individual merit.

The Council is committed to promoting Equality and Diversity across all its services and continues to increase awareness, understanding and commitment throughout our organisation.
