    Perfectly normal if those groups are under-represented. Council & Government have to make up the quota of minority groups etc to absolve themselves from discrimination accusations and exemplify the equal opps policy, and it qualifies the department in question for further funding etc to cope for the needs of such.

    To be fair though, I think what they are saying is..don't be put off if you have any of these issues -

    We all know from these boards that there is discrimination against those who are disabled or whatever, so an advert like this might give those disillusioned people the inclination to apply.

    I do and it's great it does rain quite a bit though.



    DCC do operate a positive discrimination policy.
