Arbuthnot Yon creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and builds trust between them worldwide. Working effectively with diversity is an essential part of our work.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no unjustified discrimination in the recruitment, retention, training and development of staff on the basis of age, disability, gender including transgender, HIV/AIDS status, marital status including civil partnerships, pregnancy and maternity, political opinion, race/ethnicity, religion and belief, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, spent convictions, trade union activity or membership, work pattern and on the basis of having or not having dependants or any non-relevant grounds.
We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit to try to avoid unjustified discrimination, recognising that discrimination is a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights.
All staff are required to ensure their behaviour is consistent with this policy. We also require that clients, customers, partners and suppliers are aware of this policy and operate consistently with it.
