Equality and Diversity
An integrated and diverse workforce
Encouraging the principles of equality and diversity underpins our successful and inclusive business culture. All employment decisions, including recruitment and internal promotions, are based on merit, qualification and abilities, and are not influenced or affected by race, colour, nationality, religion or belief, sex, marital status or civil partnership, family status, pregnancy or maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, disability or age. We have recruited over 2,000 individuals over the last year and we will continue to develop our business model to recruit more permanent employees as part of our commitment to ensuring stability for all our workforce regardless of nationality. We currently employ more than 10,300 staff of whom more than 7,800 are permanent workers, encompassing over 55 nationalities.
We recognise the benefits of diversity and our diversity policy provides equality and fairness. There are no differences in the pay structure for males and females performing the same or similar roles.
