Diversity and equal opportunities

Our people are our most important asset and we value and respect diversity in all its forms (seen and unseen). We particularly welcome applications from Black and Asian backgrounds, as well as candidates with disabilities and from the communities in which we work. We would like to increase representation of these groups among our staff as we know greater diversity will lead to an even greater impact for our work.

We are also committed to being an equal opportunities employer and will ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, ethnicity or religion.

We monitor our policies to ensure that discrimination does not occur in either our staffing practices or our work. In particular, our personnel policies have been designed to ensure that all staff have equal access to training, professional development and career progression.

All applicants are asked to complete an online equal opportunities monitoring form to enable us to monitor the effectiveness of our policies. This information is not part of your application and will not be used in any part of the selection process. It is anonymous and will not be seen by the interviewers or those involved in shortlisting your application, and all data will be stored confidentially and destroyed once it has been analysed.
