We are committed to supporting the principle of equal opportunities for all. We strongly oppose all unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of any protected characteristics such as age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, race, nationality, ethnic origin, religious belief, or disability.
As a recruitment partner we treat all candidates with the same level of attention, courtesy and professionalism and actively encourage applicants from a wide talent pool. We aim to draw upon the widest possible range of views and experiences to meet the changing needs of our staff, clients, partners, candidates, contractors and temporary workers. We seek to promote diversity and to respond to the needs of all individuals in a fair and equitable manner, whilst observing our commitment and responsibility to current legislation. Thus, our vacancy advertising and recruitment and selection processes are compliant with the following legislation.

- Gender neutral job advertising using Paiger, a tool to identify the use of masculine language in job adverts
- Diversity statement on all job adverts
