In order to monitor the effective implementation of the Equal Opportunities Policy, all applicants are asked to complete the enclosed Equal Opportunities form. This form will be kept confidentially within the Human Resources Department in accordance with the data protection act. It will be separate from the application form and will not be used in the selection process.

For the purpose of this question "transgender" is defined as an individual who lives, or wants to live, full time in the gender opposite to that they were assigned at birth.
The Equality Act 2010 defines a disabled person as someone who has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on his or her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
People with HIV, cancer and multiple sclerosis are deemed to be covered by the definition effectively from the point of diagnosis, rather than from the point when the condition has some adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
(If yes, please indicate the nature of your disability by selecting all that apply)
