Humanity & Inclusion UK values diversity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. We particularly encourage applications from people with disabilities.

Equality and Diversity

HI UK’s Equality and Diversity Policy permeates all aspects of its work, including its actions and attitudes towards employees, clients, consultants, temporary workers, and all others associated with its work.

The organisation recognises that individuals and groups have been discriminated against on many grounds, including the ‘protected characteristics’ under the Equality Act (age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation). HI UK’s policy is that no individual or group should receive less favourable treatment on any of these grounds.
