WWT is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in employment.

Accordingly, we will ensure that recruitment, selection, training, development and promotions are seen to be fair by all workers, employees and job applicants and result in no job applicant or employee receiving less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, colour, nationality (including citizenship), ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, age (known as protected characteristics in England, Wales, Scotland) or on the grounds of political opinion (Northern Ireland), trade union membership or non-membership, being a part-time or fixed term worker.

The Trust’s objective is to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and otherwise treated solely on the basis of their relevant aptitudes, skills and abilities.
