Sustain / Who we are / Diversity, equity, inclusion and racial justice
Diversity statement for job applicants
Diversity matters to us. Sustain has a working environment where we value and respect every individual's unique contribution. Diversity helps us identify where change is needed and what is required to promote equity as well as reflect the concerns of our wide alliance of members.
Sustain is committed to equality of opportunity and welcome applications from individuals, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic background, religion and/or belief. We are happy to discuss and consider flexible working at the point of hire.
A list of Sustain’s policies, including our commitment to diversity are on our website. We are happy to discuss and consider flexible working at the point of hire and our approach to recruiting for diversity is described in detail here.
Unless there is an exceptional reason not to do so, Sustain recruits for roles as part of our Ethnicity Confident and Disability Confident schemes. This means that applicants who meet all of the essential criteria, and who let us know voluntarily that you would like to be considered in this way, will be guaranteed a first-stage interview. The opportunity to tell us you would like to be considered din this way is included in our Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form, which is part of the application process.
All members of staff are expected to contribute to the mutually supportive culture of Sustain (including staff and project participants) in which equality and diversity are not just respected but promoted.
