Equal Opportunities and Diversity Policy
The Stringcredibles is committed to a policy of treating all of its trustees, employees and job applicants equally. No trustee, employee or potential employee shall receive less favourable treatment or consideration on the grounds of age, sex, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or new parenthood, or will be disadvantaged by any conditions of employment that cannot be justified as necessary on operational grounds.
The Stringcredibles commitment to this policy extends beyond its employment practices to its work with children and young people, the services it provides and the volunteers it works with in connection with providing these services.
The Stringcredibles is an equal opportunities employer and strives to ensure that no one is unfairly discriminated against in our recruitment or selection processes.
The Stringcredibles recognises the opportunities that diversity offers and values the richness and creative potential this brings to its work.
Ongoing responsibility for monitoring and making recommendations for review to the Board rests with the four founding members. The policy is reviewed by The Stringcredibles Board of Trustees annually.
