Equity of opportunity

The CSP is committed to equity of opportunity and we aim to provide a working and learning environment which is free from discrimination.

Work meeting with a range of staff members

We are taking appropriate steps to create a workforce that reflects the diverse society we work and live in and therefore positively encourage candidates from all sections of the community to apply.

With our new Equity Diversity and Belonging strategy, our aim is for all CSP members and staff to commit to supporting equity, diversity and belonging whilst opposing all forms of discrimination.

When applying to work for us, we treat all applications as fairly as possible by removing any potential bias as outlined for the shortlisting process. We aim to ensure that employees are recruited, trained and promoted on the basis of ability to meet the requirements of the job, in order to maintain a highly effective and efficient service for CSP members.

Equal opportunities monitoring

We ask all candidates to provide information on their age, gender, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation and disability. This data is separated from your application and held in confidence within HR. It will not be seen by the selection panel and not used in the selection process. This data will be used to monitor our compliance with equal opportunities in our recruitment processes. Please note, it is not compulsory to provide this information.

Disability confident scheme

We are part of the Disability Confident Scheme which means any candidates declaring a disability and who meet all of the essential criteria within the person specification will be shortlisted for interview. 

We are also committed to:

  • Ensuring our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible.
  • Communicating and promoting our vacancies through a range of recruitment channels.
  • Anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required.
  • Supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long term health condition, enabling them to stay in work.
