We are committed to keep moving towards diversity, equity and inclusion through intentional conversations and action. We developed our Diversity strategy with the support of one of our board subcommittees. We acknowledge that this work is never done. We especially welcome applications from people who self-identify as being from the global majority (African, Asian, Caribbean), and / or disabled applicants.

QUAD’s commitment to providing equal opportunity is central to our working practices; We also acknowledge and support our legal obligation to avoid unlawful discrimination on the grounds of protected characteristics.

QUAD recognises that the list of protected characteristics as described in law does not acknowledge all the ways in which an individual might choose to self-identify. Neither does it take into account intersectionality: where a person or group of people is affected by a number of discriminations and disadvantages.

QUAD is committed to interviewing applicants from underrepresented communities and/or with a disability or health condition who meet the minimum criteria for the job. The aim of this commitment is to encourage positive action, encouraging people with a disability to apply for roles within our organisation and provide an opportunity to demonstrate an applicant’s skills, talent, and abilities at the interview stage.

If you have a disability or health condition and need to discuss reasonable adjustments for any part of this recruitment process, please advise as part of your initial application.

Please contact, if you are disabled and need any adjustments for the application and / or selection process.

The appointment will be made subject to board approval, satisfactory references and a clear DBS.
