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, sex, 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.

Disability Confident Employer

What does this mean?

The Disability Confident accreditation means that, as an employer, the City of London Corporation is taking action to ensure that people with disabilities and long term health conditions feel supported, engaged and able to fulfil their potential in the workplace.

What do we do?

The accreditation recognises some of the proactive steps we are taking to support people with disabilities in applying for and working for the City of London Corporation.

These steps include offering interviews to all candidates who meet the minimum criteria for the role and being flexible with our recruitment processes.  It also means that we take active steps to make adjustments in the workplace to support staff with disabilities.

Why 'Disability Confident'?

We think it is one way of showing our commitment to creating an inclusive and diverse place to work.  We always continue to look for ways to do more, but this accreditation demonstrates to our employees and potential employees that we take our commitment to supporting people with disabilities at work seriously.

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.
