As an employer, we actively seek to ensure that our workforce reflects the communities we serve, recognising that this makes us better able to understand their needs and priorities.
We can only do this by ensuring that the people who work for us are the best they can be irrespective of age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, marital status, religion or belief.
As part of this, we're proud signatories of the Race at Work Charter, committing to improving racial equality in the workplace against the five charter principles.
What matters to us is that we have talented, enthusiastic and experienced professionals working with us who can help deliver our strategic outcomes.
You don't have to be sporty to work at Sport England. We value the ideas and contributions from everybody and welcome and support difference.
Our aim is to make sure that equality, diversity and inclusion run through everything we do as an employer.
As such, and in light of the discussion around race and the global Black Lives Matter movement that led to protests during the summer of 2020, we’re focusing work in four areas to ensure this happens.
We hope these areas of focus will lead us to achieving our four broad ambitions.
