21. Recruitment Process
Data source
Civil Service Resourcing.
Time period and availability
Latest data covers the period from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013.
What does this tell us?
The data show percentages of employees at different stages of the recruitment process for our vacancies opened with Civil Service Resourcing during the period, against their status in relation to each of the following protected characteristics: age; disability; ethnicity; and gender.
Application percentages are relatively evenly spread over an age range of 16 to 54. The success percentage for all protected groups is smaller than the percentage of prefer not to says / unknowns, making conclusions uncertain.
How will an improvement be shown?
Generally the similarity of this indicator in a protected and non-protected group will indicate equivalent behaviour. However, this will require a reasonably complete declaration rate and sufficiently large volumes in each category to be able to draw firm conclusions.
