Still on the job hunt even though I declared that I'd given up last week. This week though I'm casting my net further and applying for second in department jobs too. I've been looking at a few and wondered if: 1. I should bother applying if they state they "welcome applications from black ethnic minorities or those with disabilities, as these are under represented in the school" as I'm white British and have no disabilities? If yes: 2. Does this mean that if it comes to a even playing ground with someone who ticks one of their boxes I will lose out? 3. Or, if I'm slightly ahead I will lose out so they get to tick their box? 4. Is that even legal?
