Equal opportunities

We are committed to providing the best possible services for everyone in Salford and we recognise that to do this we need our most important asset - our employees.

Recruiting, retaining and developing the right people with the right skills at the right time is essential for us to deliver services that improve the quality of life for Salford residents.

As the largest employer in the city we offer a fair, efficient approach to recruitment to ensure that whatever your skills, background or qualifications we have a range of full and part time jobs, with learning and development opportunities to suit you.

We strive to be an equal opportunities employer and oppose all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination. All our employees will be recruited, trained and developed on the basis of their ability and the requirements of the job.

Applications are welcome from all sections of the community irrespective of race, gender, gender reassignment, age, disability, sexuality, religion or belief. In addition, we will accept and consider applications from ex-offenders and criminal records will be taken into account for recruitment purposes only when the conviction is relevant.

As part of our commitment to improving equality of opportunity we recognise the disadvantage experienced by disabled people. We welcome applications from disabled job applicants, and if you are disabled, guarantee to interview you if you meet the minimum criteria for jobs. Application information is also available in different formats where required, such as Braille and large print. There is also assistance in place for employees who become disabled whilst working for the council.

We participate in regular monitoring of recruitment statistics to ensure that procedures are operating effectively and that any patterns or trends are identified and resolved.
