Equality and Diversity Monitoring

We would appreciate if you could complete Hertfordshire FA’s Diversity Monitoring Form along with your application.

Completion of this form is entirely optional, however it does provide the Association with the opportunity to track the breadth and depth of the applications from different parts of the community. This should be filled in anonymously and sent back to us separately. They will be collated only for the purpose of monitoring diversity and will not be used to identify individuals.
