Equality and Diversity Policy


At Hugh James we are committed to the equality and diversity of our workforce.


What does diversity mean to Hugh James?

It relates to the recruitment and selection of the most efficient and effective workforce based on skill and expertise, regardless of age, gender, marital status, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnic group or nationality.
