FOI Request - Recruitment Demographics
I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information:
• Please provide anonymised raw data for the protected characteristics of age-group, gender and ethnicity for successful and unsuccessful job applicants to all roles at Local Government Officer level (or equivalent) at your council over the period ranging from 01/01/2016 - 31/12/2020.
(1) If unsuccessful applicant data is only retained for a shorter period, please provide whatever historical amount is retained. If no data on unsuccessful applicants is retained, please fulfil the part of the request for data pertaining to successful applicants in any case.
(2) Also, if it is quicker to simply provide all demographic data (i.e. covering more characteristics than those identified above) feel free to provide it all.
Please find the requested information attached here.
Please note that some categories have been removed where the numbers were so few that disclosure could identify individuals as personal information is exempt under section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
