We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. However, an analysis of the composition of our workforce has revealed that men, members of the Roman Catholic community and those from ethnic minority backgrounds are current under-represented. We would, therefore, particularly welcome applications from men, Roman Catholics and those from ethnic minority backgrounds. All appointments will be made solely on the basis of merit.
