Equal opportunities for all

All of us at Natural Resources Wales are committed to delivering great public services to everyone in Wales.  Respecting and valuing difference helps ensure that we provide services that reflect the needs and experiences of both our staff and of the people we serve.

To achieve this, we need a workforce with the very best possible mix of existing and future talent. By ‘best possible mix’, we mean that we need people who come from all backgrounds, be that black, Asian or minority ethnic, LGB, transgender or non-binary, young, old and those with impairments to name a few.

People perform better when they can be themselves and we know that this benefits the individual and our organisation and therefore we have staff network support groups, policies that are inclusive of everyone and all protected characteristics as well as senior managers and Board members who champion equality, diversity and inclusion.
