Equality and Diversity

We have a diverse range of employees and are committed to an active Equal Opportunities Policy. This doesn’t just cover recruitment and selection procedures, but runs right through learning and development, promotion opportunities and throughout employment with ABL.

We positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

We particularly welcome applicants from black, minority, ethnic (BME) communities and disabled people as they are currently under represented within our workforce. All appointments will be made on merit.

If you have a disability or learning difficulty which means you are unable to complete an application online, please call us to complete a telephone assessment. If you feel your disability or learning difficulty prevents you from completing a telephone or online assessment, please contact us to discuss your personal circumstances.

We are happy to accept application forms electronically or written by hand. You can also request an application form in a larger font size.

To contact us, please e-mail or contact Kath Grimshaw on 01204 570999.
