Equal opportunities

HLF is an equal opportunities employer. Our policy covers the provisions of the Equality Act 2010.

The Act harmonises and replaces previous discrimination legislation and ensures consistency in what we do to make our workplace a fair environment and ensure we comply with the law.

“The Investors in People standard demonstrates the organisation's commitment to our greatest resource: our people.”

We do not discriminate against staff or eligible applicants. We’ll judge you on your abilities and skills and nothing else. We are committed to enhancing the diverse profile of our organisation to reflect the communities within which we work.

We will always endeavour to make reasonable adjustments for disabled staff. As a recognised Disability Confident employer, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum essential criteria for every vacancy.

We are fully committed to the provision of equal access and opportunity both through the National Lottery funds which we distribute and as an employer.

We have been a recognised holder of the Investors in People standard since 2002. We have undergone three successful reviews since then. Our efforts to retain the standard underpin our work to provide continual learning and development opportunities for all our staff.
