EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES POLICY

The Employer is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full potential and to contribute to business success. This is a key employment value to which all employees are expected to give their support. 

In order to create conditions in which this goal can be realised, the Employer is committed to identifying and eliminating discriminatory practices, procedures, and attitudes throughout the organisation. The Employer expects employees to support this commitment and to assist in its realisation in all possible ways. 

Specifically, the Employer aims to ensure that no employee, customer or job applicant is discriminated against, either directly or indirectly, on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

This commitment applies to all the aspects of employment outlined below:
• Recruitment and selection, including advertisements, job descriptions, interview and selection procedures.
• Training.
• Promotion and career development opportunities.
• Terms and conditions of employment, and access to employment related benefits and facilities.
• Grievance handling and the application of disciplinary procedures.
• Selection for redundancy. 

Equal Opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change. The Employer will keep its policies under review and will implement changes where these could improve equality of opportunity. This commitment applies to all of the Employer’s employment policies and procedures, not just those specifically connected with equal opportunity.
