Our Commitment to a Modern and Diverse Workforce

Oadby and Wigston Borough Council is committed to maintaining a diverse and equal workforce which reflects the borough's diverse population. We have several means of extracting and recording equality data, used for monitoring purposes only.

Through strict policies, procedures and training, the Council ensures that no person is unfairly discriminated against when applying for a job or during the course of their employment with us.

Equal Opportunities in Employment

A section of the application form requests information relating to the nine protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010, being:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion and belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

This information is used for monitoring purposes only.

During the Recruitment and Selection process, equality monitoring information is removed from the application form to ensure the candidate with the right skills for the job is selected, free from discrimination.
