James Fisher is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion

Diversity

With an entrepreneurial culture a key driver of our success, we know it's a diverse and inclusive workforce that drives this innovative and pioneering spirit, and we aim to attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce and inclusive culture.

We're committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and as an equal opportunities employer, we are dedicated to providing a working environment in which employees are encouraged to realise their full potential in an open atmosphere of trust, honesty and respect.

It is our policy to ensure that we attract and retain the most qualified people and treat all job applicants and employees fairly and on merit. No individual shall receive more or less favourable treatment or consideration on the grounds of race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, martial status, age or disability.

It is our objective that all employees are treated fairly with equality, respect and dignity in the workplace. In circumstances where we have a legal duty to ensure that a job holder is of a specified gender or where health and safety requirements apply, we follow all legislation.

Enablement and disability inclusion

James Fisher is proud to be a Disability Confident employer, enabling us to attract and retain a wider pool of talent, as we recognise that our success depends on our talented and diverse workforce.

We strive to ensure that we enable employees with disabilities to reach their potential (including anyone who becomes disabled whilst employed with James Fisher), ensuring that their training, career development and promotion needs are met by providing reasonable adjustments, and they're treated fairly.

We recognise our responsibility to provide a safe and accessible operating environment for all our employees. Training is an important element in helping us to think differently about disability and how to make the workplace more accessible, and we aim to extend our diversity and inclusion leadership training to all aspiring managers and are exploring options for non-manager training, to better inform and empower the remainder of our employee pool.

We're committed to complying with all applicable laws governing employment practices and to the prevention of discrimination on the basis of any unlawful criteria.
