Diversity and inclusion

  • Equality, diversity and inclusion

    We’re committed to equality, diversity and promoting an inclusive environment that welcomes and values diverse backgrounds, thinking, skills and experience. We encourage people to thrive and fulfil their potential, regardless of:

    • age
    • race
    • religion or belief
    • sex
    • sexual orientation
    • gender identity
    • disability
    • marriage and civil partnership
    • pregnancy and maternity

    This is vital for our long-term success and the success of the legal profession.

    We recognise, respect and value the differences between individuals. We make sure all employees and job candidates have equal access to all the support they need.

    Workplace

    We’re committed to stopping unlawful discrimination and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. As an equal opportunities employer we treat all employees and job applicants fairly and according to their needs.

    We have put in place measures to support our approach. We want our people to reflect the diversity of our society and the profession we serve.

    We strive to make our recruitment and selection policies and procedures as accessible as possible. We rigorously monitor our recruitment and selection processes and develop targeted activities to address any under or over representation.

    Our Disability Confident accreditation shows our commitment to making sure we are responsive to, and supportive of, disabled people’s needs.

    We are a Stonewall Diversity Champion. The Diversity Champions programme is the leading employers' programme for ensuring all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.

    Recruitment process

    As part of our monitoring processes, we ask all candidates to supply demographic information at the application stage so we can develop a profile of people interested in working for us. This information is important in helping us to deliver our commitment to building a more inclusive and balanced organisation.

    The information candidates provide is:

    • treated in the strictest confidence
    • not provided to anyone involved in the shortlisting or appointment of the post
    • collated in a way that cannot be attributed to individuals

    This embedded contextualised and unbiased recruitment method makes sure all candidates are treated fairly throughout the recruitment process.
