Equal Opportunities Statement


As an equal opportunities employer, our policy is that no current or prospective employee, or third party, will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of their race (including nationality, ethnicity or national origin), religion or belief, sex, marital status or civil partnership, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, age or disability. We recognise the nine protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010 and are committed to applying the provisions of the Act in full, in all areas of our business.

We aspire to have a diverse workforce because, in our view, diversity enables better business outcomes. We also believe that a more inclusive workplace, where people of different backgrounds work together, ensures better outcomes for all staff. From application to interview, we place equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of all we do, paying particular attention to:

  • Our recruitment and selection processes, practices and procedures within the Company – we strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from a wide range of backgrounds to apply and join M-EC;
  • Our job descriptions and job specifications;
  • Our training and career development opportunities, available to all employees – with specific training for our line managers;
  • Our terms and conditions of employment;
  • Access to our employee benefits and facilities; and
  • The application of all our policies and procedures.

We take positive steps to ensure that our employees, stakeholders, contractors and clients can enjoy an experience with M-EC that is fair, equitable and free from discrimination in their dealings with us.

It is the responsibility of all our staff, led by our Board, to ensure the observance of this statement, and any breaches will be addressed swiftly and taken extremely seriously by the business.

We review this statement and our Equal Opportunities and Dignity at Work Policy on an annual basis and implement updates where necessary to ensure we are up to date in this area. This commitment applies to all of our employment policies and procedures, across the business; not just those specifically connected with equal opportunities, to ensure we are current and in line with the law, and are training our staff accordingly.

Our intention is to communicate and regularly review the positive initiatives that have been implemented. The Company intends to support and uphold the communities in which we live and work to ensure that we are involved and that the Company keeps abreast of the necessary issues and best practice within this topic.

Managing Director
