Inclusive and diverse working environment

As an employer we are committed to creating a truly inclusive, diverse and collaborative working environment starting at the beginning of our employee lifecycle, from the moment we open a recruitment process. We strive to recruit, develop and retain a talented, dedicated, enthusiastic and supportive workforce that is truly representative of our society as a whole.

Some of the ways in which we do this include:

  • having an executive senior sponsor responsible for equity, diversity and inclusion (ED&I)

  • measuring and reporting on our performance on equity, diversity and inclusion at every stage of the recruitment process

  • adopting a blind approach to our recruitment processes where candidate information, that may create conscious or unconscious bias, is removed

  • having as diverse as possible shortlisting and interview panels

  • offering and making reasonable adjustments at all stages of the recruitment process

  • ensuring all applicants who have a disability and meet the minimum criteria are guaranteed and interview.

Our culture

We understand the importance of providing an open and supportive work environment and culture in which all our staff can succeed. As part of this we have a Wellbeing Team with trained mental health first aiders who offer support and signposting to staff wellbeing resources, including regular wellbeing sessions, helping to reduce the stigma around mental health and encouraging our staff to bring their whole selves to work.

We also recognise that having engaged teams is critical to our organisational, team and personal success. Ways in which we ensure our staff team remain engaged and ensure their voice is included are by carrying out regular pulse staff surveys, annual ED&I staff surveys and having a Staff Council with representatives from each team across the organisation.
