Graduate Development Programme: candidate guide 2023

Guidance for candidates applying to the 2023 Scottish Government Graduate Development Programme.

Diversity and inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are important to us, and we aim to recruit a workforce that is reflective of our diverse nation.

We particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented in Scottish Government, including ethnic minority and disabled applicants and those who have experienced socio-economic disadvantage.

We want all of our staff members to build a strong network and feel part of the wider SG community, so we have established a number of staff networks which are open to all employees to join and participate in, these include:

  • the Race Equality Network
  • the Disabled Staff network
  • the LGBTI+ Network
  • the Gender Equality Network
  • the Age Network and more

All staff undertake diversity training and we have a range of activities which promote diversity within our workforce.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Leader, Stonewall Diversity Champion, holder of a gold Healthy Working Lives award and an Investors in People accreditation.
