It is important to us that our employees are as diverse as our communities, as we believe that the personal experiences of those who work for us make us stronger as a council and enable us to better connect and serve our communities.
We know that a diverse pool of talent is vital in creating an effective workforce that can bring a wide range of skills and experience to our services. Applicants are welcomed without regard to their race, colour, religion or belief, age, nationality, ethnicity, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or other related medical conditions, paternity or adoption), gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, disability or caring responsibilities.
As a Disability Confident employer, if you have a disability, you are guaranteed an interview as long as your applications shows that you meet essential criteria for the job.
Where the evidence shows that protected characteristics are underrepresented in a profession or service, we may take ‘positive action’ to encourage applications for jobs to address this. You can view our latest equality reports here.
As part of our drive to continuously improve equality and diversity at Gloucestershire County Council, we have a number of network groups working with leaders to review what we do as an organisation. These staff-led groups help us promote and protect diversity and inclusion.
