Equal Opportunities in Employment
The River Thames Boat Project is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to ensure equal opportunities from all applicants to its posts and for all employees in its service.
The Charity’s policy is that no employee shall receive less favourable treatment than another on grounds of race, age, colour, nationality or ethnic or national origin, creed, religion, sexual orientation, sex marital status, pregnancy, having dependent children or disability.
Individuals will be promoted and treated generally on the same basis of their relevant merits and abilities. Training and promotion criteria and procedures shall be designed to this end and shall not be discriminatory or potentially discriminatory on the grounds stated above.
The establishment of an Equal Opportunities Policy is the first step to meeting the legal requirements of current legislation and to ensuring adherence to the Codes of Practice issued by the Equal Opportunities Commission and the Commission for Racial Equality. To ensure that the aims of the Policy are being achieved, the Charity needs to record certain personal details about its employees, as well as future applicants.
Because of this, and for no other reason, the Charity would be grateful if you would provide the information requested. It is hoped that seen in this context, these questions will in no way give cause for offence. The Information will be held at the Charity’s office or on a data base. It will be treated in the strictest of confidence in line with the Data Protection Act.
This information will be separated from your application form upon receipt. It is not part of your application and will not be used in any part of the selection process.
