Sheffield City Trust will advertise posts outlining the relevant skills, qualifications, knowledge, competencies and experience necessary for the job in order to attract the best applicants. We may, on occasion, decide to take positive action to welcome applications from groups which do not usually apply, or are under-represented in the workforce or in the grade being advertised.
The People and Service Team will ensure all published job advertisements comply with current equality legislation.
Short-listing and Interviews
Shortlisting and interview panels will always contain at least 2 people and the Chair of the short-listing panel will produce a short-list of job applicants who, from the evidence available, appear to have the necessary skills and abilities in relation to criteria stipulated in the job description and person specification.
All staff members who are involved in short-listing or interviewing job applicants, or involved in other selection processes, will be aware of the Trust’s policy on equality and diversity and have undertaken recruitment and selection training covering equality and diversity.
The People and Service Team will monitor job applications, short-listing, interviewees and appointments for both permanent and temporary positions, with regards to age, ethnic origin, disability, and gender. If monitoring reveals evidence of any form of discrimination, remedial action will be taken to redress it.
