The City of London Corporation values the rich diversity and creative potential people with different backgrounds, skills and abilities bring to the workplace.

Our commitment

In applying this policy, we recognise our obligations under relevant employment / equality law and Codes of Practice. We will be proactive in promoting our commitment to equality and diversity by:

  • Communicating the policy to all employees, volunteers and those on work placements
  • Providing appropriate training
  • Allocating clear responsibilities

Unfair treatment on the grounds of: age, disability, employment status, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, nationality, religious belief or non-belief, responsibility for dependants, sexual orientation, social background, trade union or political activity or any other reasons which cannot be shown to be justified, will be taken very seriously.

Our Equal Opportunities Policy (170KB) aims to treat all current and prospective employees fairly, with dignity and respect.

Recruitment and selection

People involved in recruitment are trained appropriately, from writing job ads to interview selections and process ensuring all new candidates will be considered solely on merit, against carefully considered, justifiable job / role requirements.

Two Ticks disability scheme

This is an accreditation given to organisations who are committed to employing disabled people. It means we have agreed to:

  • Interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  • Discuss with disabled employees, at any time but at least once a year, what you can both do to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
  • Make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • Take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • Review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans

Career development and training

To get the best from our employees throughout their careers we will provide the support necessary to help employees realise their potential and encourage employees to apply for jobs to suit their experience and skills.

Monitoring and review

We regularly monitor our workforce composition, staff in post, applicants for jobs, training and development, employee complaints, disciplinary procedures, dismissals and other reasons for leaving.
