    You can choose a job candidate who has a protected characteristic over one who doesn’t if they’re as suitable for the job and you think that people with that characteristic: are underrepresented in the workforce, profession or industry suffer a disadvantage connected to that characteristic (eg people from a certain ethnic group are not often given jobs in your sector) You can only do this if you’re trying to address the under-representation or disadvantage for that particular person. You must make decisions on a case by case basis and not because of a certain policy. You can’t choose a candidate who isn’t as suitable for the job just because they have a protected characteristic.
