Equal Opportunities Statement

Equal opportunity is about good employment practices and efficient use of the Company’s most valuable asset; it’s Employees. The Company is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst its workforce and treats job ap­plicants and Employees equally, regard­less of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. These are called protected characteristics. Every Employee has a personal responsibility to ensure that the Policy is adhered to.

The Company is committed to complying with relevant employment legislation and codes of practice as a minimum benchmark. Wherever possible the Company strives to exceed legislative requirements by developing policies and procedures that help it achieve its aim of being an Employer of Choice.

This Policy applies to the advertisement of jobs, the recruitment process, training, development and promotion, conditions of work, pay and benefits and to every other aspect of employment.
