Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion:

Having worked with many organisations that champion equality, diversity and inclusion from a range of backgrounds and perspectives, we are committed to the same principles in our own employment practices. We actively welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, gender, disability, religion/belief, socio economic background, sexual orientation or age.

Our approach to recruitment:

We know that well qualified people often screen themselves out as they can’t tick all the boxes of the job description, or their imposter syndrome kicks in. No-one can do everything perfectly, so we are looking to build a team with complementary skills and the right attitude and values. So, if you’re wavering, we encourage you to apply.
