Equality and diversity at Harlow Council

Harlow Council is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity, fairness and quality for all, both in the services that it provides to the community and in its role as an employer. The Council is an accredited member of the Two Ticks Scheme, which was awarded to the Council by Jobcentre Plus in recognition of the commitment regarding employment, retention, training and career development of employees with disabilities.
