Diversity and inclusion

At Energy Saving Trust, we are committed to building a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace where everyone can be themselves and are supported to be their best.

We are an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to treating all current and prospective employees fairly and to ensuring that our workplace and employment practices are free from discrimination, harassment or victimisation on the grounds of race, gender, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, trans status, disability, religion or belief and age.

We aspire to have a truly diverse and representative workplace and strongly encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds and with different identities and experiences to apply for roles with Energy Saving Trust.

We want to ensure that our recruitment process is inclusive of and accessible for everyone. If you are interested in applying for a role with us and think you may need some additional support or reasonable adjustments made to any part of the recruitment process, please get in touch with the People team. We will do our very best to support you.  Please see our recruitment FAQs for more information.

What we are doing to become more diverse and inclusive. At Energy Saving Trust, we want to do more than just talk about diversity and inclusion: we want to take real and meaningful action. For example, we have recently hired a diversity and inclusion (D&I) lead, who will help us to develop a new organisational D&I strategy. This is an exciting first step for us, but we know we can always do more.  It’s important to us that diversity and inclusion is not just owned by one person, or one strategy, but that it is embedded within everything we do as an organisation. All our colleagues have a role to play in helping Energy Saving Trust become more diverse and inclusive and we hope you will join us for this next stage in our journey.

We are working hard to address the climate emergency for everyone. You can read our diversity statement here.
