Equality and Diversity

Swindon Borough Council recognises that to be a great place to work, we need people from all backgrounds and experiences to challenge current ways of thinking and bring fresh ideas and perspective.

We want you to feel comfortable to be your true self at work. That’s why we promote Equality, Diversity & Inclusion in all areas of our work and service delivery.

We will uphold the right of each employee to be judged on merit and competence, regardless of age, disability, race, sexuality, sex, gender identity, religion, marital status or maternity/pregnancy.

We will fulfil this responsibility by promoting equality of opportunity through our employment policies, practices and service delivery arrangements; making Swindon Borough Council a great place to work.  

We are a Disability Confident Employer and will guarantee interviews to Disabled People who meet the minimum selection criteria for the job they have applied for.  We are also a member of the Mindful Employers Initiative.

We are working to become an inclusive employer and applications are welcomed from a diverse range of communities, and in particular disabled people and black and minority ethnic applicants.
