British Red Cross

The British Red Cross is one of the most recognised brands across the globe. We help millions of people in the UK and around the world to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, disasters and conflicts. We are part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent humanitarian network and we refuse to ignore people in crisis.

Join our leading national charity for career development opportunities, training and the chance to help people across the world. Whichever sector you currently work in, we are keen to hear from you.

We seek to ensure that our organisation is relevant and accessible to all. We value fresh perspectives and insights gained by involving and welcoming people from the widest possible diversity of backgrounds, cultures and experiences.

We recognise the strength that diversity brings. Differences such as gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religious belief, age, culture, physical appearance and national origin are recognised and celebrated. 

While we appreciate that people from different backgrounds bring new skills, ideas and experiences, we also recognise that these differences can result in unfavourable treatment or discrimination. We are firmly committed to challenging discrimination and striving to achieve equal access for all.

We have three diversity networks: BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic), Disability, and LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Plus). The networks are open to all staff and volunteers and provide forums to meet new people, share experiences, and learn about initiatives and opportunities. The networks are also consulted on relevant projects and activities.

 

Diversity in Recruitment

Every possible step is taken to ensure that each individual has equality of opportunity and is treated fairly. Decisions on recruitment, selection, promotion, and career and personal development are based solely on objective job- or task-related criteria.

On the basis of our organisational values and fundamental principles, particularly humanity, unity and impartiality, we will not tolerate:

  • - any form of harassment
  • - any unlawful acts of discrimination 
  • - any unjustifiable acts of discrimination on any grounds, including ethnic or national origin, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, religious beliefs or age.

Any breach of this policy will be subject to our disciplinary and grievance procedures.

 

Removing Bias

We recognise that promoting equal opportunities involves removing bias from existing policies, procedures and practices to ensure equal access to employment and volunteering opportunities. We collect information on the protected characteristics of our applicants and employees to identify any areas for improvement and necessary changes in our processes and practices.
