Equal Opportunities

Peel Airports wholeheartedly supports the principal of equal opportunities in employment and condemns all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination. We are committed to ensuring that no person is treated less favourably because of their sex, race, ethnic origin, class, nationality, marital status, sexuality, age, disability or religious beliefs.

The Company believes that it is in their best interests and those of all who work in the Company to ensure that the human resources, talents and skills available throughout the community are considered when employment opportunities arise.  Discrimination of any kind, which prevents the Company from doing so, is a misuse and a waste of human resources and is also illegal and/or unlawful in many instances.

The Company will take every step to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on recruitment and selection on training, promotion and career development are taken solely on job based criteria.

Acts of discrimination including harassment are grounds for disciplinary action and individuals have the right to seek redress under the appropriate policy i.e. dignity at work or grievance procedure.

In recruiting, Peel Airports will seek to ensure equality of opportunity and treatment for all persons. All documentation and advertising will be closely examined to eradicate any potentially discriminatory material. Media will be chosen to try and ensure the widest and most diverse audience possible.  Selection procedures and criteria will ensure that individuals are selected and promoted on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities.

We will actively encourage job applications from people with backgrounds that are significantly underrepresented in the Company (including in particular, people from ethnic minority groups, women and disabled people). 

This will be achieved through support, so that people from underrepresented groups can compete for jobs and promotion opportunities on the same basis as everyone else.
