Job Applicant Privacy Notice
WHY WE’RE ASKING
When you apply for a job with us we might ask some extra questions about you. This includes a couple of questions about your ethnicity, asylum/refugee status, sexual orientation and your trans status¹. This information will only be seen by our HR team – it will be seen separately from your application and will not be used to identify you. It will not be seen by anyone involved in interviewing or shortlisting, and it certainly won’t be used against you. On the contrary, it’s to help us make sure we’re as inclusive as possible. Here’s why you should let us know:
WE WANT TO UNDERSTAND OUR STAFF BETTER
We ask questions to collect overall statistical information – not to pinpoint individuals. It helps us understand more the different groups of people who work here, and what their experiences of the organisation are like. We want to make sure that everyone feels our workplace is a safe and inclusive place that treats them fairly and meets their needs.
YOUR INFORMATION IS SAFE
There are strict laws to make sure your information is stored safely and responsibly. Your answers are confidential and will never be used in a way that will identify you. We’ll always show you how we use the information you give us to improve our organisation.
HELP US BECOME A MORE INCLUSIVE EMPLOYER
We want to make our organisation as inclusive as possible for everyone who works here, regardless of their sexual orientation, their ethnicity, their trans status, gender or any disability. By learning more about the people who work here, we can take steps to make sure everyone is being treated fairly & feels like they work in a safe environment.
