Equal Opportunities and Diversity Statement

The Company is committed to providing a working environment in which employees are able to realise their full
potential and to contribute to its business success irrespective of their gender, race, disability, sexual orientation,
marital status, part time status, age, religion or belief. This is compliance with the Equality Act 2010.

The Company values the differences that a diverse workforce brings. This is a key employment value to which all
employees are expected to give their support.

The Company is committed to identifying and eliminating unlawful discriminatory practices, procedures and
attitudes throughout the Company. The Company expects employees to support this commitment and to assist in
its realisation in all possible ways.

Specifically, the Company aims to ensure that no employee or candidate is subject to unlawful discrimination, either
directly or indirectly, on the grounds of gender, race (including colour, nationality or ethnic origin), disability, sexual
orientation, marital status, part time status, age, religion or belief.

This commitment applies to all aspects of employment, including:
− recruitment and selection, including advertisements, job descriptions, interview and selection procedures;
− training;
− promotion and career development opportunities;
− terms and conditions of employment, and access to employment related benefits and facilities;
− grievance handling and the application of disciplinary procedures; and
− selection for redundancy

Equal opportunities practice is developing constantly as social attitudes and legislation change. The Company will
keep its policies under review and will implement changes where these could improve equality of opportunity. This
commitment applies to all the Company’s employment policies and procedures, not just those specifically connected
with equal opportunities and diversity.
