We recognise the importance of having a workforce that reflects the people of Leeds. We believe it is important, as it recognises and values diversity, and can help us to deliver services that reflect the needs of everyone in our city.
We are committed to valuing diversity, and treating everyone who works for or wishes to work for us and the people of Leeds fairly. We will treat everyone with the same attention, courtesy and respect regardless of age, impairment, ethnic origin, nationality, religion or belief, social class, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, responsibility for dependants, pregnancy and maternity or trade union activity.
We actively encourage and promote individual development with a view to all our staff being able to develop their career through all levels of the council without discrimination.
