Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to recruiting the right people, with the right skills, knowledge and experience.
Irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origins, religion or belief, age, pregnancy or maternity leave or trade union membership, we offer opportunities, learning and progression based only on merit and are committed to the development of all our employees through a range of training activities, including graduate programme, supporting professional qualifications, management development, technical training, on-the-job training, mentoring and coaching and fulfilling Continuing Professional Development requirements.
Promotion takes place in a structured and co-ordinated way in the same way as recruitment to ensure that promotion is merit-based on skills, knowledge and experience, and we monitor the profile of our workforce to ensure our Equality and Diversity Policy continues to be fully effective.
