North Lanarkshire Council
Here at North Lanarkshire Council, we are building a workforce for the future, that means our employees reflect the communities we serve. We are committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion in employment and embrace the spirit of the relevant legislation and codes of practice and recognise the need to ensure equality for our employees and prospective employees.
We recognise everyone’s worth, respect each other and are a sensitive and understanding employer. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.
We’re taking steps for our people in the communities where we live and work to help create more opportunities and build a more inclusive and diverse future. We are proud of our participation and achievements in the following programmes:
We are a Disability Confident Leader and through the scheme we ensure disabled people have the opportunity to reach their goals and aspirations. To support disabled people at work the Council has in place a Reasonable Adjustment Protocol. This provides disabled employees and their managers with a process for agreeing what tailored adjustments are needed to support employees to do their job. We offer a guaranteed interview to applicants who consider themselves to be disabled and who meet the essential criteria for the job.
We are proud to be an Equally Safe at Work employer who strives to advance gender equality in the workplace and prevent violence against women. We have many supportive policies to support women in the workplace including flexible working, breastfeeding, gender based violence etc.
We have signed up to the Business in the Community Race at Work Charter to help us ensure Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people can thrive at work in NLC. Our Deputy Chief Executive has become our Executive Sponsor for Race and is committed to leading this work.
We are also committed to providing support to members of the armed forces, veterans and their families which is set out in the Armed Forces Community Covenant. We offer a guaranteed interview for service leavers, spouses, reservists and veterans who meet the essential criteria for the job.
We have an active Employee Equality Forum which provides a place for all employees to influence organisational strategies, policies and procedures for promoting and advancing equality, and tackling discrimination.
We welcome applications from people with disabilities for all our jobs. We will help and support you in any way we can during the recruitment process. Find out more by clicking this link
