Equality & Diversity
We aim to increase the number and diversity of people who actively engage with, and support, the historic environment and continually look for new ways to promote the past in a way that is inclusive to all and that celebrates the cultural diversity of England's heritage.
These values run through everything that we do. We value diversity amongst our staff and expect everyone to be treated with equal dignity and respect. We also understand that you have a life beyond work: we have family-friendly policies and promote flexible working to ensure that you can balance your work and home life.
"Positive about Disabled People" standards
We are committed to the "Positive about Disabled People" standards and are proud to use the double tick logo. In terms of recruitment, this means that we will interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities. We are determined to make sure that:
- Our workforce reflects the diverse society that it serves
- No job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment by reason of age, disability, gender re-assignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, or pregnancy and maternity
- No job applicant or employee is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements, which cannot be justified by the requirements of the job.
