Sustrans is proud to be a Living Wage employer.
The ‘real living wage’ is set by the Living Wage Foundation (LWF). The organisation runs an accreditation scheme where organisations are committed to paying all staff and those in their network the Living Wage.
It is independently calculated based on what people need to get by and is currently paid voluntarily by more than 10,000 businesses in the UK.
Sustrans has a long-term commitment to being a charity for everyone - reducing inequality, valuing diversity, enabling inclusion and ensuring all people are treated with dignity and respect.
We aim to be a truly inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all parts of the community, particularly from under-represented groups.
We are taking positive action to address an under-representation of Black, Indigenous and other People of Colour (BIPOC) and disabled employees within our workforce.
We offer both BIPOC and disabled applicants the option of requesting that their application is considered under the terms of our BIPOC/disabled guaranteed interview schemes. Your application must demonstrate that you meet the essential criteria to progress to the interview.
From the moment you apply to when you're part of our team, we're always here to help and make things easier for you.
