We believe that there should be no discrimination (direct or indirect) in relation to recruitment, training and promotion on the grounds of gender, colour, race, ethnic or national origin, creed, political beliefs, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, age (normal retirement and pension age is 65), marital status, responsibility for dependants, trade union activities, employment status or personal belief.
We take all appropriate steps to ensure that our employees are recruited, trained and promoted on the basis of ability, the requirements of the job, and the need to maintain a highly effective and efficient service to members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. This policy is in accordance with the full provision of all relevant legislation in this field.
To help us ensure we achieve this, we ask all candidates to provide information on their age, gender, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, and disability. This is used solely for monitoring purposes, and will not be seen by anyone involved in the selection process. It is not compulsory to provide the information.
We are part of the Positive About Disabled People scheme, which means that we will ensure that any candidates declaring a disability are assessed on the essential criteria of the person specification only. Any candidates declaring a disability who meet the essential criteria for the role will be shortlisted for interview.
All interviews are carried out by a panel of 2 or more people, usually including a representative from Human Resources. We ask all candidates the same pre-prepared questions, based on the person specification for the role.
