Equality and diversity

We can only achieve a safer world of work for all by welcoming people from different backgrounds into the profession. We’re working hard to make IOSH an inclusive environment where we treat everyone fairly regardless of age, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, family circumstances or anything else

We value and celebrate difference, encouraging applications from all individuals to bring new perspectives, ideas and knowledge.

"A huge benefit of working at IOSH is the flexibility and work-life balance you can achieve. It feels like one big family, especially as I’ve spent the biggest part of my professional career here! I love the variety of my role, and the different areas within IOSH. There’s always something new to learn about, even 10 years later."
