Equality and Diversity

We recognise everyone’s worth, respect each other and are a sensitive and understanding employer.

Here at North Lanarkshire Council, we are building a workforce for the future, which means our employees reflect the communities we serve. We are committed to the principles of equality and diversity in employment and embrace the spirit of the relevant legislation and codes of practice and recognise the need to ensure equality for our employees and prospective employees. 

We welcome applications from people with disabilities for all our jobs. We will help and support you in any way we can during the recruitment process

We are proud of our participation and achievements in the following programmes:

Disability Confident Leader

We are a Disability Confident Leader and through the scheme, we ensure disabled people have the opportunity to reach their goals and aspirations. To support disabled people at work the Council has in place a  Reasonable Adjustment Protocol. This provides disabled employees and their managers with a process for agreeing on tailored adjustments to support employees to do their job. We also guarantee an interview to disabled applicants who meet the minimum job criteria.

Equally Safe at Work

We are an Equally Safe at Work employer that strives to advance gender equality in the workplace and prevent violence against women. We have many supportive policies to support women in the workplace including flexible working, breastfeeding, gender-based violence etc. We are also the first Local Authority to have specially trained gender-based violence support officers for our employees.

Business in the Community Race at Work Charter

To help us ensure Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people can thrive at work in NLC  we have signed up to the Business in the Community Race at Work Charter. Our Deputy Chief Executive has become our Executive Sponsor for Race and is committed to leading this work.

Our Employee Equality Forum

We have an active Employee Equality Forum which provides a place for all employees to influence organisational strategies, policies, and procedures for promoting and advancing equality, and tackling discrimination.
