The Law Society has made a commitment to eradicate unlawful discrimination and promote equality, diversity and inclusion. We are an equal opportunities employer and it is our policy to treat all employees and job applicants fairly and equally regardless of their sex (defined as gender, sexual orientation, marital status, civil partnership or gender reassignment), race (defined as race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, national origin, religion or religious or philosophical belief), disability or age.
Inclusion is at the heart of all that we do. In employment terms, we have put in place the following measures to support our approach to diversity and inclusion:
We are keen to ensure that our people reflect the diversity of our society. We strive to make our recruitment and selection policies and procedures as accessible as possible.
We monitor our recruitment and selection processes rigorously to see if there is any disproportionality evident in the outcomes of our processes. We then develop targeted activities to address any under/over representation.
Our Disability Confident accreditation reflects our commitment to ensure that we are responsive to the needs of disabled people.
As part of our monitoring processes, we request demographic information from all candidates at the application stage so that we can develop a profile of those interested in working for us. The information you provide is treated in the strictest confidence, is not provided to anyone involved in the short listing or appointment of the post, and is collated in a way that is non-attributable. This information is important in helping us to deliver our commitment to building a more inclusive organisation.
