Everyone shall have an equal opportunity for employment and advancement based on ability, necessary qualifications and fitness for work irrespective of sex, age, marital status, civil partnership, sexual orientation, colour, race, creed, religion or national or ethnic origin.
CGI gives full and fair consideration to all applications for employment from disabled persons having regard to particular aptitudes and abilities, continuing where possible the employment of staff who become disabled.
We have a grievance procedure for complaints about discriminatory conduct, and a harassment policy for any complaints related to sexual or racial harassment. We want staff to feel able to raise such grievances without fear of penalty, unless it’s untrue or made in bad faith.
We ask applicants and staff to complete a form detailing their sex, race, ethnic origin and any disabilities, but we guarantee that this form will only be used to monitor the effectiveness of our equal opportunities policy.
We are committed to recruiting women, students, those with disabilities and other historically under-represented groups. We ensure that all organisational policies, pay, hours of work, training, performance review schemes, disciplinary or other procedures and benefits are designed to promote equal opportunity and provide protection for all members.
We have a Women’s and a Capability network where we encourage our members to support and learn from each other and from people outside the organisation. CGI is committed to being a disability confident organisation.
