The Firm supports the principle of equal opportunities in relation to any opportunities which we might provide through the engagement of employees; the provision of services to clients; and the appointment and engagement of suppliers. The Firm opposes all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on grounds of race or racial group (including colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins); sex (including marital status, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity and paternity); sexual orientation (including civil partnership status); religion or belief; age; or disability. We believe that it is in the Firm's best interests, and of all who work for, or otherwise provide services or goods etc, to ensure that the human resources, talents and skills available throughout the community are considered when opportunities arise.
To this end, the Firm recognises its obligations Under the Race Relations Act, Sex Discrimination Act, Equal Pay Act, Disability Discrimination Act and other relevant equal opportunities legislation/directives. We are committed, wherever practicable, to maintaining a workforce which broadly reflects the local community in which we operate. In relation to the providers of goods and services to the Firm we seek to achieve the same aim and to secure the supply of those goods and services etc from a range of providers which also reflects the ethnic diversity of suppliers of such goods and services.
Every possible step will be taken to ensure that clients, potential and existing employees and suppliers are treated equally and fairly:
be it verbal, written or in electronic form, including email.
