MPES – Equal opportunity policy

Last revised April 2022

We aim to ensure that no job applicant, employee, worker or customer is discriminated against on the grounds of a protected characteristic.

The following are protected characteristics:

·         Gender Reassignment

·         Marriage & Civil Partnership

·         Race

·         Religion

·         Sex

·         Sexual Orientation

·         Pregnancy & Maternity

·         Age

·         Disability


In addition, we aim to ensure that no job applicant, employee or worker is treated less favourably or placed at a disadvantage on the grounds of their part-time status or trade union activities. 

This applies in the advertisement of jobs, recruitment, appointment, provision of benefits, allocation of training, promotion, disciplinary proceedings, dismissal, conditions of work, pay, giving a reference and every other aspect of employment. 

If you believe that you have been disadvantaged because of any of the above, please do not hesitate to report the matter to the Managing Director so that the issue can be investigated and resolved.


We do not and will not tolerate any discrimination and anyone found to be acting in such a way will face disciplinary action that could include dismissal.  Everyone has a duty to report any such behaviour to a member of management.  We actively promote non-discriminatory behaviour and do not tolerate any behaviour that could be considered unlawful or is covered by matters mentioned above.
