Equality and Diversity

English Heritage is an equal opportunities employer and actively promotes the benefits of a diverse workforce. We aim to increase the number and diversity of people who actively engage with, and to continually look for new ways to promote the past in a way that is inclusive to all and that celebrates the cultural diversity of England's heritage.


Our equality and diversity values are reflected in everything we do. We value diversity among our staff and expect everyone to be treated with equal dignity and respect. We also understand that you have a life beyond work; we have family friendly policies and promote flexible working hours to ensure that you can balance your work and home life.

We are committed to the Disability Confident Scheme standards within the organisation. In terms of recruitment, this means that we will interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities. English Heritage is determined to ensure:


  • Our workforce reflects the diverse society that it serves
  • No job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment by reason of age, disability, gender re-assignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, or pregnancy and maternity
  • No job applicant or employee is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements, which cannot be justified by the requirements of the job.
  • We have a zero tolerance policy on all forms of modern slavery and coerced labour of human trafficking. Please read our Modern Slavery Transparency Statement for more information.
