The university has a number of policies that promote equality and diversity for its staff and students. Details of staff-facing policies, such as support for parents, Disability Confident and flexible working and retirement, can be found in the Working with us section.
Staff benefits such as leave entitlements; support for parents and carers; staff development opportunities and flexible working provisions are open to all staff irrespective of age, disability, gender, gender identity, marriage/civil partnership status, race, religion/belief or sexual orientation.
As part of our Equality Objectives (pdf), we aim to ensure that equality and diversity considerations are mainstreamed within all parts of the day-to-day running of the university. This is to ensure that we make informed and appropriate decisions and do not inadvertently disadvantage people who share protected characteristics.
