Equal Opportunities Policy – Reviewed: 10th January 2023
At South East Site Engineers (SESE) we recognise our need to provide equal opportunities to all persons without discrimination. We maintain the highest regard for equal opportunity in all aspects of employment, which includes both recruitment and promotion; providing guidance and encouragement to employees at all levels acting fairly in preventing discrimination.
At SESE we work against discrimination on the grounds of sex as defined by the Sex Discrimination Acts 1975 and 1986, race as defined by the Race Relations Act 1976, disability as defined by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, as well as any discrimination on the grounds of marital status, part-time status, age, sexual orientation or religion.At SESE all employees:
- Are considered solely on their merits for career development and promotion.
- Are encouraged to discuss their career prospects and training needs with their Manager.
- Are selected against defined criteria that deal only with their suitability for the job.
Where it is necessary to ask questions relating to personal circumstances, these will be related purely to job requirements and asked of all candidates.
Any complaints of discrimination will be dealt with seriously and proactively through an organised grievance procedure reviewed and overseen by the director.
In all circumstances SESE will encourage innovation within our service development and delivery through the skills and creativity of our diverse team of individuals.
All SESE staff will be made aware of the provisions of this policy at their initial induction, the criteria of which will be reviewed annually; taking into account any legislative developments due to come into effect.
