Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at Battersea


Equality, Diversity & Inclusion at Battersea

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all current and prospective employees, volunteers and Trustees. We aim to ensure that this commitment, reinforced by our values, is embedded in our day-to-day working practices and our work together.

We have a very inclusive culture and celebrate our diversity through involvement in events such as Pride. Our gender pay gap is significantly lower than the UK and animal welfare sector average and we are committed to reducing it further. We offer a range of family friendly benefits and are committed to increasing flexible working options for employees whose jobs enable this.

We are taking further steps to increase the diversity of our workforce and to represent the communities we serve and work in, including training all employees to understand what diversity and inclusion means and the job we all have in enhancing and supporting this at work.

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic and disabled candidates, who are currently under-represented at Battersea. We adapt and adjust our recruitment and selection processes to enable disabled candidates to perform at their best and to make reasonable adjustments to enable all employees to contribute fully during their work with us .
