We aim to increase the diversity of our personnel by paying more attention to the recruitment and employment of people of different backgrounds and experience. We prefer anonymous recruitment.
Our doors are open to people from different backgrounds – we believe that diversity is a richness, which is also taken into account when developing working methods and services.
Anonymous recruitment means that the applicant’s personal information does not appear in applications as the employer reviews potential candidates for interview. Visible information, such as experience, encourages attention to the skills required in the task that are essential to the city’s strategy. Anonymity reduces, among other things, gender and age discrimination.
