We embrace diversity and actively seek to attract individuals with unique backgrounds and perspectives.

To achieve our vision and create a brighter, better future, we need the best team – with a diverse mix of people and skills, where everyone feels welcome and able to succeed.

Therefore, we are committed and we strive to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and is valued irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership and pregnancy. This is not an exhaustive list!

We have a clear Equal Opportunities and Diversity Policy that aims to eliminate unfair discrimination and to promote equality and diversity for all, and we are achieving this by:

Undertaking recruitment, promotion, training and career development practices that do not discriminate.

  • Seeking to meet individual requirements for flexible working practices.
  • Seeking to reflect diversity in the context of the local community.
  • Maintaining records and undertaking regular analysis of the workforce and job applicants in order that appropriate remedial actions are taken.
  • Enabling colleagues to develop and use their talents to the full.
  • Providing training to our colleagues to ensure that they are aware of our commitment to equal opportunities and diversity.

We are proud of our multiyear partnerships with:

  • Inclusive Employers
  • Wellbeing of Women – Menopause workplace pledge
  • Rail Unites for Inclusion
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
