Peterborough City Council is strongly committed to taking a lead role in the elimination of discrimination and the promotion of equality in employment and welcomes job applications from all parts of the community. The council’s Equality and Diversity Policy is based on the principle that people are not discriminated against on the basis of race, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability or marital status.
To ensure that our policy is having an effect, we need to monitor candidates and employees, particularly in relation to ethnic origin, gender, age, disability and nationality. We therefore ask that all applicants give the information requested on the application form. This information is used only to monitor our progress on equality matters, is treated confidentially and is not revealed outside the council.
Peterborough City Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff (and volunteers) to share this commitment. DBS checks will be required for relevant posts.
