Promoting Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service are fully committed to meeting our duties to matters of equality in all areas of our service. The Service encourages equality, diversity and inclusion among our workforce, and by appreciating differences and promoting equality, prejudices can be challenged and unlawful discrimination eliminated.
The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society and our communities, and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best.
The Service takes steps to encourage people from groups with different needs or with a past record of disadvantage or low participation to apply for vacancies via various positive action initiatives, which includes open station events, visible attendance at community events, careers events and jobs fairs at locations across North Wales.
The Service will not avoid or lower recruitment and selection standards to the benefit of individuals from under-represented groups, however, will consider reasonable adjustments as appropriate at every stage of recruitment and selection procedures.
