Our selection criteria and procedures are frequently reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.
All employees are given equal opportunity and are encouraged to progress within the organisation.
We are committed to an ongoing programme of action to make this policy fully effective. To ensure that this policy is fully and fairly implemented and monitored, and for no other reason, would you please provide the following information:
