Booktrust is an equal opportunities employer

We aim to ensure that no job applicant receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, marital status, race, colour, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, age or disability and that all appointments are made solely on the basis of merit.


In order that our equality policy is effective we carry out regular monitoring of job applicants, and we would therefore ask you to complete the equality monitoring form. This information will be kept centrally within our secure HR department, completely separate from your recruitment application form and will be used for the sole purpose of compiling statistical information. The information will be separated from the application form and will not be given to the selection panel. The completed monitoring form will be destroyed once the information given in it has been collated.
