The City Council is working to be an equal opportunities employer.
We will take a range of measures to achieve this aim. We encourage and actively support governing bodies in schools to adopt the same standards.
In accordance with current legislation, we aim to ensure that no job applicant will be treated unfavourably on the grounds of sex, marital status, disability, race, colour, ethnic or natural origin, sexual orientation and religion or belief.
We also aim to ensure that no job applicant is treated unfavourably on the grounds of religion, sexuality, class, income, caring responsibilities, age, home locality or any other factor that can form the basis of discriminatory behaviour.
Newcastle City Council is now an Employment Service Disability Symbol user.
