The Barton Partnership embraces diversity and aims to promote the benefits of diversity in all of our business activities. 

We seek to develop a business culture that reflects that belief. We will expand the media in which we recruit to, to ensure that we have a diverse employee and candidate base. We will also strive to ensure that our clients meet their own diversity targets. 

The Barton Partnership is committed to diversity and will promote diversity for all employees, workers and applicants. We will continuously review all aspects of recruitment to avoid unlawful discrimination. The Barton Partnership will treat everyone equally and will not discriminate on the grounds of an individual’s “protected characteristic” under the Equality Act 2010 (the Act) which are age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation. We will not discriminate on the grounds of an individual’s membership or non-membership of a Trade Union.

All staff have an obligation to respect and comply with this policy. The Barton Partnership is committed to providing training for its entire staff in equal opportunities and diversity. The Barton Partnership will avoid stipulating unnecessary requirements which will exclude a higher proportion of a particular group of people, and will not prescribe discriminatory requirements for a role.

The Barton Partnership will not discriminate unlawfully when deciding which candidate/temporary worker is submitted for a vacancy or assignment, or in any terms of employment or terms of engagement for temporary workers. The Barton Partnership will ensure that each candidate is assessed in accordance with the candidate’s merits, qualifications and ability to perform the relevant duties for the role.
