We are committed to promoting equality of access and work hard to ensure our services and provision is accessible to all regardless of protected characteristics or personal circumstances.

The Equalities Act 2010 enshrines in law a number of protected characteristics and an expectations upon employers to ensure they both support and embrace diversity within their organisations and many of the employers we work with recognise the value this adds to their culture, clients and workforce

We are here to help students understand the legislation and your make the right choices if you have any concerns.  Working with other departments, we provide a range of service including:

  • Collaboration with other professional services directorates including Diversity & Inclusion, Disability Advisory Service and Counselling & Well-being Service.
  • Close links with both the staff and student LGBT+ networks on campus.
  • Close links with organisations championing disability, LGBT+ and BAME opportunities to ensure relevant jobs and events are advertised on King’s CareerConnect.
  • Up-to-date advice on recruitment processes, disclosure, reasonable adjustments and other disability and diversity issues.
  • Bespoke diversity resources for students online and within our Careers Centre at the Strand campus.

Our staff are regularly trained to understand the latest legislation and work with colleagues across King's to ensure we are able to provide referrals and advice on where to seek further information when required.
