Equal Opportunities & Diversity

Partner Group Limited is an equal opportunities employer. As such, we aspire to reflect our diversity values in our internal recruitment procedures as well as our work ethics as a recruitment agency. We are committed to a policy of equal opportunities for all and shall adhere to such a policy at all times.

In accordance with existing as well as imminent equal opportunities (subordinate) legislation, including but not limited to the Race Relations Act 1976 (as amended), the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 (as amended), and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (as amended). Partner Group Limited treats everyone equally irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, race, colour, religion, ethnic or national origin, membership or non-membership of a trade union, working hours or whether on a fixed term or permanent contract. Moreover, Partner Group Limited reviews, on an on-going basis, all aspects of recruitment to avoid unlawful or undesirable discrimination or harassment on those grounds.

Partner Group Limited is committed to providing equal opportunities training for staff through corporate membership of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC). The REC, as the governing body for the Recruitment Industry, ensures that corporate members and their staff meet current equal opportunities standards. Our staff are obliged to respect and act in accordance with this policy.

Partner Group Limited is committed to treating all full-time and part-time workers and job applicants (actual and potential) fairly and selection of employment, promotion, training or any other benefit will be based on relevant merits, aptitude and ability. In addition, Partner Group Limited does not directly or indirectly discriminate when deciding which candidates are submitted for a vacancy or assignment or in any terms of employment or engagement. Partner Group Limited ensures that each candidate is assessed solely in accordance with the candidate’s merits, qualifications and abilities to perform the relevant duties required by the particular vacancy.

Furthermore, Partner Group Limited will not accept instructions from clients that indicate that an element of unlawful discrimination or harassment will be brought to fruition unless there are genuine occupational requirements or other legislative exceptions detailed in the instructions. It is our intention to work with organisations that have a similar equal opportunities policy to Partner Group Limited.

Workers who believe they have suffered any form of discrimination, harassment or victimisation are encouraged to raise the matter with Partner Group Limited. Any complaint will be dealt with seriously and without undue delay.

Any breach of this policy by employees of Partner Group Limited will be treated as misconduct, or in the case of serious breaches, gross misconduct. Where appropriate, disciplinary action will be taken, which could in serious cases, lead to dismissal with or without notice or payment in lieu of notice. In addition, individuals can be held personally liable for acts of discrimination/ harassment that they commit, authorise, contribute to or condone.

This policy is not contractual but is a statement of the current Partner Group Limited policy. Partner Group Limited reserves the right to amend the policy as necessary to meet any change in requirements.
