The BAME Guaranteed Interview Scheme at Liverpool Guild of Students is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity. We annually review racial diversity within our workforce and it is a key priority for us to improve racial and ethnic diversity amongst our workforce, and as such we particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic (BAME) candidates and have introduced a BAME guaranteed interview scheme. We recognise that applicants from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds may have experienced additional barriers when applying for new roles.

Therefore, we are taking positive action to address an under-representation within our organisation. If you meet the minimum criteria (at least 80% of the 'essential' criteria in the person specification) and are from a BAME background, you'll be guaranteed an interview. If you are a BAME applicant and would like to be considered under our guaranteed interview scheme, you must indicate this by selecting the relevant box on the Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form. If you do not select this box, your application will be considered alongside all other applications. It is important to note that this scheme guarantees an interview for BAME applicants who meet the minimum criteria. The selection decision at interview will be based on the most suitable candidate, regardless of background or protected characteristic.
