Equal opportunities

We are an equal opportunities and
equal pay employer.

We are signatories to the UN Global Compact and we measure our performance against the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Ensuring equal opportunities is part of our effort under Goal 5: Gender equality.

We are committed to strict ethical standards and equality practices across the Group. This begins with gender and age equality, with equal pay for equivalent roles, and extends across all of our behaviours.​

In addition to maintaining our own policies and behaviours, our Code of Conduct for suppliers guarantees that our suppliers all adhere to equal opportunities standards too.

We are supporting STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education and have a dedicated team who educate students of all genders and from all socio-economic backgrounds in local schools about the leather making process and how STEM subjects are vital across our industry.

Science, technology, engineering and maths form the backbone of leather manufacture, and by working with local schools and engaging with community fairs, we hope to not only recruit the next generation of leather technologists, but also bridge the gender gap in STEM industries.

We educate local students on the importance of STEM subjects.

We offer equal pay for comparable roles.
