Equal Opportunities Policy




Hexagon will ensure that candidates applying for employment will not receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, nationality, or ethnic or national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, class, caring responsibilities, religion or belief.

a,     We will actively seek to ensure equality of opportunity and treatment for all persons.


b,     Selection and promotion criteria and procedures will be regularly reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.  All employees will be given equal opportunities.


c,     We will seek to employ staff at all levels from disadvantaged minority groups.


d,     We will actively seek to ensure that we employ members of staff with disabilities.


e,     We will seek to employ members of minority groups as a means of redressing the racial imbalance which exists in the provision of employment and, where it is justifiable, to incorporate membership of a minority group as a genuine occupational qualification for any specific job.


f,     We will ensure that permanent job vacancies are publicly advertised, and that the Equality & Diversity Policy is available to all job applicants.


g,     We will monitor the ethnic origin, gender, physical disabilities, age, sexual orientation and religion/belief of job applicants to ensure that a wide range of applicants apply for employment.
