Diversity

Diversity is part of who we are

Wesleyan was founded in 1841 in Birmingham, a city whose history of growth and success is a result of continual migration and immigration.

Today, Birmingham is the UK’s most culturally and ethnically diverse city outside London. Like our hometown, Wesleyan values diversity and opportunities to work with us are open to everyone.

That means no applicant for a job at Wesleyan will be treated less favourably than another on the grounds of age, disability, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

A place to be yourself

We strive to create an environment where employees feel proud of who and what they are, in and outside work. By encouraging people to be themselves and contribute their opinions and perspective, we’ll make better decisions as a business.

To enable this, we’re partnering with external organisations including The Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (enei), Stonewall and Drive. Proud to be an employer of choice in Birmingham we offer an inclusive culture however we recognise that with the support these partnerships bring, we can further develop our activity to promote equality, inclusion and diversity.

Alongside this we’ve established a working group to assist with and enable the effective delivery of our inclusion and diversity activity. This group is Chaired by Roger Dix, Chief Risk Officer along with Caroline Hill, Director of HR & Corporate Services and Chair Representatives from our Inclusion and Diversity employee networks; LGBT+, Gender, BAME, Physical and Mental Wellbeing.

Having a truly diverse workforce helps Wesleyan look and sound more like our customers, so we’re better able to serve them and the wider communities in which we all live.
