Supporting diversity and equal opportunities

Diversity and equality is at the heart of our business. We are committed to providing equal opportunities, promoting diversity and making sure discrimination plays no part in our dealings with colleagues, clients and third parties.

This means everyone at Trethowans is expected to treat all people with the same attention, courtesy and respect, no matter who they are, where they are from or how they look. For example, we are committed to making reasonable adjustments for those with a disability in relation to job opportunities, promotions, training and the provision of our services.

Put simply, it is our aim to employ the very best, regardless of religious belief, race, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, maternity and pregnancy status, gender reassignment, disability or worker status.

Every year, our Partners and staff attend compulsory Equality and Diversity training. And we have a Diversity and Equal Opportunities Policy which is monitored regularly and reviewed annually.
