Equality of opportunity at Flint Town United Football Club means that in all our activities we will not discriminate or in any way treat anyone less favourably, on grounds of age, ability or disability, gender, gender reassignment sex, sexual orientation, marital status, ethnic, natural or social origin, skin colour, race, religion or belief, pregnancy and maternity, language, or wealth.
Flint Town United Football Club will ensure that its recruitment procedures are fair and non-discriminatory. We will ensure that no job applicant suffers discrimination because of any of the Protected Characteristics contained in the Equality Act 2010.
As well as complying with legislation we will promote equality by taking positive steps to counteract the effects of physical or cultural barriers – whether real or perceived – that restrict the opportunity for all sections of the community to participate equally and fully.
Flint Town United Football Club will therefore seek to institute, support or contribute to appropriate measures or initiatives that enable access to our club, as well as require participation in associated activities by people from any group that is under-represented in the club or has difficulty accessing it.
All vacancies will be advertised appropriately to ensure that all potential applicants are informed of available opportunities. Equal opportunities statements will be present in all job advertisements.
All recruitment publicity will be designed to positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and experienced people, particularly those from under-represented groups and will avoid any stereotyping of roles or non-inclusive language.
The Club will ensure at all times it selects the most suitable person for the role in respect of skills, experience, and qualifications, irrespective of any of the Protected Characteristics or by any other unjustifiable condition or requirement.
All those involved in the recruitment processes will receive appropriate training to limit any potential bias in decision making.
Recruitment monitoring information will be obtained from all applicants and Positive Action will be applied when and where appropriate to address under-representation of the club’s workforce.

The clubs “Equality Champion” is responsible for the implementation and monitoring of this policy, along with the “Equality Lead” on the Board, however, all Club Officials and Members have a role to play in achieving its objectives.
