Diversity, Equality and Inclusion (DEI) Statement

Our commitment to DEI is that: 

  • we are committed to ensuring diversity, equality, equity, and inclusion is woven into the fabric of WNC and everything we do, to enable all colleagues to develop and maximize their full potential
  • we commit to engaging, learning and being open to advancing DEI in WNC, no matter how sensitive or challenging this may be
  • we are committed to listening to our workforce and our staff networks who help us challenge to improve, and to creating working groups and networks externally with partners so we can learn from each other
  • we recognise that individuals still experience discrimination and inequality in our society, and therefore as an employer we commit to taking a pro-active approach to identifying and addressing this within our workplace
  • we view diversity as a strength to be harnessed and commit to building an inclusive workplace culture where the thoughts, ideas and perspectives of all individuals matter and contribute to our success

The following film was created by us to communicate our intentions - watch WNC colleagues explain what DEI means to us.

Our staff networks

We are a disability confident employer, a member of the Armed Forces Covenant, and a Care Leaver Covenant partner. We have a range of staff networks that are open to all colleagues to join, including the Equality, Ethnicity and Diversity network, LGBTQ+ and allies network,  Disability network, Carers network and Women’s network to name a few!

Additional support

If you need additional support or reasonable adjustments during the application process, please email [email protected] for support. For reasonable adjustments during the interview process, please let the hiring manager know (details can be found on the job advert) and we will be happy to support.

As part of our commitment to the Care Leaver and Armed Forces covenant, you will be offered a guaranteed interview if you meet the essential criteria of the role you apply for, if you are a care leaver, or ex-member of the armed forces.
