At Hearing Dogs for Deaf People we believe in providing a safe and pleasureable working environment for all our employees. We aim to be an equal opportunities employer and undertake to apply objective criteria to assess merit and ability.
We aim to ensure that no job applicant, employee or worker receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, colour, national or ethnic origins, gender, sexual orientation or perceived sexuality, marital status, disability, membership or non-membership of trade union, "spent conviction" of ex-offenders, class, age, politics, religion or belief.
Selection criteria and procedures will be reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.
All employees will be given equal opportunity and, where appropriate and possible, special training to enable them to progress within the Charity. We are committed to a programme of action to make this policy effective in order to minimise the possibility of discrimination, and to stop it immediately, whenever it arises.
