Equal Opportunities

At the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) we are committed to ensuring equal opportunities for everyone.  As an equal opportunity employer, LSHTM strives to make sure individuals are selected on the basis of their merits and abilities.

As a public body, we recognise our legal responsibilities to promote equal opportunities in our policies, services and in employment.  Therefore, we aim to promote equal opportunities in all aspects of our employment including recruitment and selection, probation, appraisal, staff development, promotion, redundancy, disciplinary and grievance procedures. 

Our commitment extends beyond our legal responsibilities to include equal opportunities and non-discrimination regardless of race (including colour, nationality, citizenship and ethnic background), sex, gender identity, disability, religion or belief (or non affiliation thereof), sexual orientation, age,  marital or parental status, trade union affiliation, socio-economic background and any other immaterial factors.

We embrace and value the diversity of our staff and student population and seek to promote equity, diversity and inclusion as essential elements in contribution to improving health worldwide. We believe that when people feel respected and included, they can be more creative, successful, and happier at work. While we have more work to do, we are committed to building an inclusive workplace, a community that everyone feels a part of, which is safe, respectful, supportive and enables all to reach their full potential.

We ask applicants to provide Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) data in order to help us monitor the effectiveness of our recruitment and equality, diversity, and inclusion policies and practices. The information you may choose to provide is used for monitoring the inclusivity of our selection processes.

Any information you choose to share with us will be treated with complete confidentiality and will not be made available to the selection panel for any part of the recruitment process. For successful candidates, the information provided will also be stored on the HR/Payroll database. Information supplied in statutory returns, funding or other reporting will be anonymised.
