•   not in employment, education or training

•   from our local communities including in particular disabled individuals, carers and those from the Cardiff BAME and LGBT+communities

No job applicant, employee or service user should be treated less favourably on the grounds of age, disability, gender identity/reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, (including same sex couples), race, religion, belief or non-belief, sex, sexual orientation and the Welsh Language'.

Candidates with a disability

Cardiff Council is an accredited Disability Confident employer and actively promotes its commitment to good disability employment practice. As part of this commitment, applicants with a disability and who meet the essential criteria for the role, will be offered an interview and will be asked prior to attending whether they require any reasonable adjustments to allow them to participate in the process.

Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

Cardiff Council has earned a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award in recognition of its support and commitment to the armed forces community. We will always welcome job applications from members of the armed forces, including reservists and cadets who will never be unfairly disadvantaged at any stage of recruitment and selection process. 

The Council welcomes correspondence in English and Welsh and we will ensure that we communicate with you in the language of your choice, whether that's English, Welsh or bilingual as long as you let us know which you prefer. Corresponding in Welsh will not lead to any delay.
