Equal Opportunities

The Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body is committed to promoting equality of opportunity and treatment and to eliminating unfair discrimination in its employment practices.

It will seek to ensure that all job applicants and staff are treated fairly, with respect and without bias. No job applicant or employee will receive less favourable treatment than others because of her or his:

  • age
  • disability (unless such treatment is objectively justified)
  • gender identity
  • sex 
  • sexual orientation, marital or family status
  • racial group (includes colour, race, nationality, national or ethnic origin)
  • religion, religious belief, or a similar philosophical belief (or lack of any of these)
  • part-time or fixed-term contract status (unless such treatment is objectively justified)
  • trade union membership status/activities
  • offending background. 

We guarantee to interview any disabled applicants who meet the essential requirements for the job they’ve applied for. The essential requirements for this job are described under “Qualifications and Experience” and “Skills and Knowledge” in the job information pages.

We are committed to building a diverse and representative workforce and we particularly welcome applications from disabled people and members of the black and minority ethnic communities.
