Equal Opportunities

Beyond Equality values diversity and inclusion and we have worked to create an application process that is as accessible as possible, however, we still recognise that there is maybe more we can do especially for applicants who are minoritised in society, have specific accessibility needs and/or experience discrimination. If this is the case we are happy and open to discussing better ways to support your candidacy and make this application process as equitable as possible for you.

We’re open to non-conventional experience and expertise. People from communities which traditionally experience discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity or immigration status; women; new parents; people with disabilities and LGBTQI+ people are encouraged to apply.

We are a diverse organisation and welcome everyone but it is important to note that the intersections of your identity will not increase or affect the amount of labour you are asked to do. If you wish to draw on your own lived experiences that will be both encouraged and supported but it is not nor ever will be a prerequisite of this role.

This is a hybrid/ working-from-home position and working hours are equivalent to 3 days per week with flexible working available.
