Scanwel is committed to equality of opportunities for all. The aim of the Scanwel’s policy is to ensure that no job applicant or member of staff receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of sex, marital status, race, colour, nationality, or ethnic or national origins, age or responsibility for dependants, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable. Selection criteria and procedures are reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. The normal contractural retirement age at Scanwel is 65. Successful candidates will be selected solely on their ability to carry our the duties of the post.
Scanwel recognises its responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act to protect disabled people from discrimination in the field of employment. As part of this protection Scanwel is committed to making, where reasonable, adjustments to its employment arrangements, or its premises, if these place disabled people at a substantial disadvantage.
Applicants, considering themselves to have a disability that might place them at a disadvantage when compared to a non-disabled person, are invited to bring to the attention of Scanwel, any adjustments to employment arrangements or premises that might help them better perform the duties of the post.
