About us - Equal Opportunities Statement

At Key Fund we are committed to reflecting and representing the diversity of the UK and to equal opportunities in employment. The policies and practices of Key Fund aim to promote an environment that is free from all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination and values the diversity of all people. At the heart of of us, we seek to treat people fairly and with dignity and respect.

We will take every possible step to ensure that no person working at Key Fund, seeking employment with us, or any member of our team of Associates will receive less favorable treatment (direct discrimination) or will be disadvantaged by requirements or conditions that cannot be shown to be justifiable (indirect discrimination) on the grounds of their:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Gender Reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation
  •  

We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good management practice; it also makes sound business sense. Affording staff full dignity at work promotes good employee relations and satisfaction, and results in a motivated, productive, and creative workforce.


We will take positive steps to ensure that this statement is known to all employees and potential employees. We will also ensure that equal opportunity is embedded in all our policies, procedures, day-to-day practices, and external relationships.


Equal opportunities in employment

All applicants are treated equally and fairly throughout the recruitment and selection process.

All decisions are made in line with Key Fund’s equal opportunities and recruitment and selection decisions, are made on merit – in line with the job and skills requirements set for the vacancy.
