Walsall Council is committed to the principle of equal opportunities for everyone. That means taking action to stop discrimination and making sure that job applicants are only considered on their ability to do the job.
We recognise that fair recruitment and selection practices are crucial in delivering equality of opportunity. Read about our Equality and Diversity Protocol below to learn more.
