Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service is firmly committed to providing equality of opportunity for both current and potential employees and equality of service to the community. To achieve this, the Service will create an environment in which there is respect for every individual and recognition of their needs and aspirations, regardless of their sex, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, religion or creed, political beliefs, trade union activity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, disability, age or any other factor which cannot be justified. It is the responsibility of everyone to make this happen. The Service will not tolerate contravention of its equality and fairness at work policy by any employee and will deal with unacceptable conduct.
All appointments to the Service will be made on the basis of suitability of applicants against job related criteria.
