Thank you for your email regarding advert 68268
This was placed by Creative Access as part of their work to improve the representation of BAME people in the UK media industry and is entirely legal.
These are not permanent jobs but trainee positions, and anyone completing them will have to apply for a job with the company in the normal way - they do not provide a shortcut.
The Equality Act makes it clear that employers can take steps to help people with a particular protected characteristic overcome their disadvantage - for example, by offering internships or placements, and that they may encourage the participation of people with a particular protected characteristic in employment or training - for example, by reserving places on a training course. This role falls under these criteria and is therefore completely within the law as there is a well-documented lack of representation of BAME people in the UK's creative industries.
Citizens Advice has a useful guide to the law in this area
We continue to post a wide range of jobs that are likely to be of interest to MPs staff.
