PDF is committed to equal opportunities. It aims to ensure that no job applicant, employee, volunteer or user of its services receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, colour, nationality, ethnic or racial origin; nor is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
Working within the constraints of PDF's Trust and Constitution, this principle will apply to recruitment, promotion, transfer, training, benefits, facilities, procedures and all terms and conditions of employment. Selection criteria and procedures will be regularly reviewed to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. All employees will be given equal opportunity and, where appropriate and possible, training to progress within the organisation.
PDF monitors its personnel policies and practices and will take appropriate action to ensure that the equal opportunities policy is fully effective.
