Diversity monitoring

Field Seymour Parkes supports diversity and equality for all. We endeavour to recruit the best candidate for the particular position. Our decisions are not affected by gender, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age or disability (except to the extent that an applicant’s disability requires us to provide assistance when we are able to do so). The Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) requires us to monitor our applicants as a means of checking that we have a diverse workforce. We have set out the following questions to assist us in this process. The questions are taken from the SRA’s model Diversity Questionnaire. Completion is entirely optional and your answers do not form part of your application. They will be used only to monitor the effectiveness of our equality and diversity policy.

Ethic origin/nationality

Age (please indicate your age category)

Which gender do you identify with?

Socio-economic background and caring responsibilities

NB. If you changed your type of school during your education or were educated partly in the UK and partly outside, please select the category that applies to your main place of education during the last two years of your education.

Do you consider your own gender identity to be different from that associated with your sex registered at birth?

Sexual orientation

Religion or belief


The Equality Act defines a disabled person as someone who has a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long term adverse effect on the person’s ability to carry out normal day to day activities.
NB. If you care for more than one person select the answer which reflects the total number of hours you care for all individuals.

If you have a condition which fits the Equality Act definition, please select ‘Yes’ even if you are not limited by your condition.

Are your day-to-day activities limited because of a health problem or disability which has lasted, or is expected to last, at least twelve months?
