The information you provide will be used to assess your application against the requirements for the post, to confirm references, verify educational background and qualifications, and for any other purpose relevant to your application and our recruitment processes. It will also be used for statistical purposes.
We appoint staff on the basis of merit, regardless of ethnic origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, race, colour, nationality (within current legislation), marital status, caring or parental responsibilities, age, or beliefs on matters such as religion and politics. Monitoring equality and diversity information enables us to see what's happening in practice, to assess the impact of our Equality and Diversity Policy and its implementation, to set any targets for improvements and to measure progress.
On submission, the equality and diversity information you provide will be stored separately from your application. The information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence, and won't be used in the selection process. It'll only be used for the purposes of monitoring.
Please note that when you submit your application, you confirm that the information you provide is accurate. Any false statement or failure to disclose information where required to do so may be considered sufficient cause for rejection or, if appointed, render you liable to disciplinary action which may include dismissal.
