Committed to Building Diverse & Inclusive Teams
The recruitment process is an integral part of the ongoing drive for diversity in the UK's built environment industries. Carrington West takes D&I into account at every step of the process, from training all of our consultants and staff, advising hiring managers on best practices, and ensuring our supply chain complies with our D&I policy. Carrington West is unique in the way that D&I plays a massive part in our own culture and features highly in our people management best practice. Our "people first" approach is part of our culture. Our mission is to provide the best possible workplace for everyone, and to help us all be the best possible versions of ourselves both professionally and personally. Alongside this, all Carrington West employees have extensive diversity training to ensure they are best placed to themselves understand and recruit with diversity and inclusion in mind.
A clear D&I strategy throughout the talent supply chain will enable D&I objectives to be met and help teams meet their full potential.
In the majority of our sectors, especially engineering roles, women are underrepresented. A 2020 report by Engineering UK revealed that women make up only 14.5% of all engineers. This statistic increased from 4.6% since 2016, showing the steady improvement being made, but will only continue with efforts from everyone in the industry. Only 9% of UK engineers are from BAME (black and minority ethic) backgrounds, despite that an average of 29.9% of engineering university graduates are from BAME background.
These are just some figures that point to a need for change in the UK built environment sector.
