Thank you very much for taking the time to complete these questions. We expect it will take about 2-3 minutes of your time.
Why answer this questionnaire?
At Free Word, it's really important to us that a diverse range of ideas, opinions and perspectives influence and shape our work. We do all we can to promote equality of opportunity, encourage representation, and eliminate discrimination.
Free Word is particularly keen to encourage applications from groups that are underrepresented in the arts sector, in particular people of colour, those that self-identify as disabled, people across the gender spectrum or those who are currently in receipt of Universal Credit.
If you feel able to answer the questions below it will really help us to understand how we are doing, and will inform our recruitment processes. Each question has a 'prefer not to say' option.
Your privacy and how we will use your answers
Disclosing your name when completing this questionnaire is not compulsory and we have switched on all anonymity settings in Survey Monkey.
Applicants that choose to disclose their name in this survey allow for us to account for groups currently underrepresented within our workforce. Presently, all candidates who include their name on their Equal Opportunities Questionnaire, self-identify as disabled and demonstrate that they meet the essential criteria will be invited for interview.
The information you provide will stay confidential and be stored securely with access limited to staff with HR or recruitment responsibilities. It will only be used for the purpose of monitoring the effectiveness of our approach to equality and diversity in the workplace. Forms will only be kept for a limited time but aggregated data will be retained and analysed.
