Promoting Diversity

The North East LEP is committed to promoting equal opportunities in accordance with the Equalities Act 2010 throughout the organisation – including the employment of staff, recruitment of Board members and through the services and activities we support.

The overall make up the North East LEP Board reflects the diversity of our business population in terms of geography, business size and sectors and business leaders that reflect local gender and ethnicity characteristics. Where North East LEP Board vacancies arise we will seek to promote applications from any under- represented protected groups, business sector or geographic localities to help ensure we retain a diverse and representative balance.

All employees are made aware of the NECA Equal Opportunity Policy and their responsibilities to comply with this policy and avoid discrimination of any groups or individuals with protected characteristics:

  • Age
  • Race (which includes colour and ethnic/national origin)
  • Disability
  • Religion or belief
  • Gender
  • Gender reassignment
  • Pregnancy or maternity
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marital or civil partner status.
