Monitoring Questionnaire

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer. We aim to provide equality of opportunity to all persons regardless of their religious belief; political opinion; sex; race; age; sexual orientation; or whether they are married or in a civil partnership; or, whether they are disabled; or gender reassignment. We do not discriminate against our job applicants or employees on any of the grounds listed above. We aim to select the best person for the job and all recruitment decisions are made objectively. In this questionnaire we will ask you to provide us some personal information about yourself due to two reasons:

  • Firstly, we are doing this to demonstrate our commitment to promoting equality of opportunity in employment. The information that you provide us will assist us measure effectiveness of our equal opportunity policies.
  • Secondly, we also monitor community background and sex of our job applicants and employees in order to comply with our duties under the Fair Employment & Treatment (NI) Order 1998.

This information is used for no other purpose and will be treated as confidential.

Community Background
