Diversity & Inclusion

Our biggest strength comes from the people that work for us, and that’s why we’re working hard to continue to be an accessible and inclusive organisation. From dedicated staff networks overseen by our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group, to proudly standing as a Disability Confident employer, it’s important to us that all our colleagues feel engaged, listened to, and valued.
