As part of our commitment under the More than a Moment initiative to combat these barriers, we are operating a Guaranteed Interview Scheme for any applicants from black* backgrounds who meet the Essential Criteria in the Personal Specification.

* We have adopted the Black Ticket Project‘s definition of ‘Black’: as of Black African, Caribbean, Afro-Latinx and African-American heritage, including those of mixed-Black heritage who identify as such (More Than A Moment).
