  • Equal Opportunities
    The Western Region's Equal Opportunities Policy states:-

    "It is the policy of the Region that all eligible persons will have equal opportunity for employment and advancement in the Board, irrespective of perceived religious belief, political opinion, gender, disability or race. Selection will be made on the basis of ability, qualifications and aptitude to carry out the duties of the post."

    The Board realizes that the provision of equality of opportunity is not just a legal imposition but is rather a concept which has its roots in Human Rights and Fairness.

    We are therefore wholly committed to fairness and specifically to the provision of equality of opportunity in all our activities.

    In addition, the Board shall continue to recognize its obligations under the following legislation:

    • The Fair Employment Acts (NI) 1976 and 1989

    • The Sex Discrimination Act (NI) Orders 1976 and 1988

    • The Equal Pay Act (NI) 1970 as amended and the Disabled Persons (Employment) Acts (NI) 1945 and 1960

    It is important that all Officers of the Board have a responsibility to accept personal involvement in the effective application of the Equal Opportunities Policy

  • Employee Relations
    The Employee Relations function provides for the retention and motivation of staff through effective development and maintenance of high quality employee management policies,
