In November 2022, we made improvements to the ESS / IBC Portal self-service platform related to Disability, Religion/Belief, Ethnicity and Gender Identity. We’ve developed this even further by adding new fields relating to carer responsibilities and armed forces status.
How can you contribute?
You can help to continuously improve our inclusivity, by enabling us to understand our diverse community of users better. Take some time to review and update your data in the “My information” tile in ESS / IBC Portal. This is especially important if you have been in the armed forces or have caring responsibilities as these fields are available for the first time.
The data is used in an anonymised way to help shape future developments of our service.
