Equality & Diversity

Hartwell Buck is committed to promoting equality and diversity and translating this into all aspects of our everyday work from both the running of our business to the identification and selection of candidates for our clients.

From a candidate sourcing perspective we are totally committed to providing as diverse a candidate mix as possible, the aim is simply to recruit the best person for the role. We will monitor our own recruitment policies and procedures as well as the candidate database to ensure our own compliance. Our policies and procedures will be continually monitored and updated as required.

From a business perspective this is not a "nice to have" but of critical importance in running a progressive, successful business. As such, we will not tolerate discrimination or other unfair treatment against any of our staff or users of our services, on the basis of gender, race, colour, age, ethnicity, marital status, family circumstances, disability, sexual orientation, political or religious belief.

Our employees are required to be fully aware of the company policy and their responsibilities in respect to the policy.
