Equal Opportunities in Recruitment

Paisley First is committed to promoting Equality and Diversity in all its activities, both as an employer and provider of services. This means that we will take positive steps to ensure that no job applicant, employee, current and potential service users, will be discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion/belief or individual characteristics which may impact upon their opportunities in life.

Criminal Convictions

The declaration of a criminal conviction will not necessarily bar you from employment with Paisley First.  Each declaration will be considered on an individual basis.

Right to Work in the UK

The Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 made it a criminal offence for employers to employ a person who is not entitled to live or work in the UK.

In order to ensure Paisley First is not breaking the law all people offered a position will be required to produce evidence of their identity to be checked before employment can be formally confirmed. The relevant documents include passports, official documentation showing National Insurance Number, birth certificate or a relevant work permit.

Your suitability for the job

The information contained in your application form helps us to decide who to select to progress to testing and / or interview. To give you guidance about what to put in your application form we have included a Job Description and Person Specification.  Please use this section to show how you meet the criteria outlined in the Person Specification.

You should demonstrate how you match any knowledge, skills or experience we have asked for.

It is important for you to give an example for each criteria. For example if we have asked for experience of working to tight deadlines it is not enough just to state you have previously worked to tight deadlines. You need to give us a specific example of an occasion when you have worked to tight deadlines – include what the deadline was, why was it important, what was your role and what was the outcome?

This helps us to accurately judge your ability to meet our criteria. This information is likely to come from your current or previous employment but it is also worth considering skills you may have gained from school or college, voluntary work, a hobby or skills you have gained at home.

We will also assess your suitability for the role by asking you at interview stage to provide a 10 minute presentation. If shortlisted you will be provided with full details in your invitation to attend for interview.


Your referees will be sent a copy of the job description for the position you are applying for and asked to comment on your suitability.  Please make sure, where possible, you provide referees who know you in a work capacity and are able to accurately provide a reference in relation to your ability to do the job you are applying for.
