Equal Opportunities

Our commitment

CFC is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all staff and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit. We expect everyone at the Centre to ensure that he or she does not directly or indirectly (even unintentionally) discriminate against job applicants, fellow employees or other workers.


The Centre acknowledges that the profile of its workforce should reflect the diverse nature of society. In pursuit of this aim, the Centre recognises the need for fair and consistent recruitment and selection practices, which ensure that no applicant is placed at a disadvantage by conditions that cannot be justified on the basis of the needs of a particular role.

The Centre will take steps to ensure that applications are attracted from candidates without regard to age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation and will ensure that there are equal opportunities in all stages of the recruitment process.

We are required by law to ensure that all employees are entitled to work in the UK. Assumptions about immigration status will not be made by us based on appearance or apparent nationality. All prospective staff, regardless of nationality, must be able to produce original documents (such as a passport) before employment starts, to satisfy current immigration legislation. The list of acceptable documents is set out by the UK Border Agency from time to time.
