Our official languages (Welsh and English)
We are fully committed to continuously enhancing and improving our exemplary bilingual services and to being a truly bilingual organisation so that Senedd Members, the public and staff can choose to work or communicate naturally in either or both of our official languages, with the use of both languages proactively encouraged and facilitated.
Though we do not require all our staff to be fluent in both our official languages, our expectation is that they are all committed to the delivery of services in both our official languages. To that extent, we expect all Senedd appointees to have, or to acquire during an agreed period, courtesy-level skills in Welsh. All posts are assessed in the context of the service area's ability to deliver bilingual services to our customers and some posts, therefore, require a higher level of Welsh to facilitate that. Such requirements are expressed in the Job Description.
