We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups, to enable us to bring diversity of perspective to our thinking and conversation. We pride ourselves on being inclusive and it’s important to us that we strive to have a workforce that is diverse in the widest sense. If you share our values and ambitions, and have the skills and experience, then we would be delighted to receive your application.
