As part of our monitoring processes, we request demographic information from all candidates at the application stage.
The information you provide is voluntary and is treated in the strictest confidence. The JAC will use the information you provide in two ways: where the Equal Merit approach applies, and to monitor the selection process. Other than for the purposes of Equal Merit, your diversity monitoring information will not play any part in the selection process.
If you are recommended for an appointment we will also share your information – for monitoring purposes only – with the Ministry of Justice, Judicial Office and Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service.
This information is important in helping us to deliver our commitment to delivering fair selection processes.
