Encouraging a diverse workforce
Our city is known and loved for its diversity. Not only is the mixture of people, culture and skills vital to the economic and social development of the city, it's what makes Brighton & Hove such a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and visit.
We are committed to developing and retaining a workforce that is representative of the diverse communities that we serve. We're striving to build an inclusive workplace culture where all employees feel valued and our rich diversity is celebrated by everyone.
As part of this commitment, we work collaboratively with our staff networks:
- Black & Minority Ethnic Workers' Forum
- Disabled Workers and Carers Network
- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Workers' Forum
- Women's Network Women's Network
We encourage people from all sections of our community to apply for jobs with us. We particularly welcome Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, disabled, male and trans applicants because these groups are currently under-represented in our workforce.
When you apply for a job at the council, we'll ask you to fill in an equalities monitoring form. Your answers are kept strictly confidential at all times and we will not identify individuals. The equalities data we collect helps us to identify any disproportionate outcomes for applicants and to target our positive actions that will address them.
