Parity is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full potential and contribute to business success irrespective of his or her gender, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or racial origin, marital status, sexual orientation, religion or disability while ensuring the provisions of equality are strictly adhered to. This is a key employment value to which all employees are expected to give their support.
In order to create conditions in which this goal can be realized, Parity is committed to identifying and eliminating discriminatory practices, procedures, and attitudes throughout the organisation and expects employees to support this commitment and to assist in its realization in all possible ways.
We welcome applicants and employs a diverse group of staff with different experiences, backgrounds, cultures, outlooks and ambitions from all sections of the community. We are totally committed to equality of opportunity in our recruitment process and decisions, which are based on skills, abilities, potential and achievements which are related to the needs of the job.
Specifically, Parity aims to ensure that no employee or job applicant, volunteer, client or other stakeholder receives less favourable treatment or is discriminated against, either directly or indirectly on the grounds of gender, race, colour, disability, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, sexuality, pregnancy, responsibility for dependants, gender re-assignment, religion or belief, age or trade union activity.
Parity is committed to a programme of action to ensure this policy is effectively implemented and as Equal opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change, we will keep our policies under review and will implement changes where these could improve equality of opportunity. This commitment applies to all Parity’s employment policies and procedures, not just those specifically connected with equal opportunity.
