Sainty, Hird & Partners is committed to promoting diversity

Sainty, Hird & Partners is committed to the principles and practices of diversity and equality within both our own business and those of our clients.  We strive always to source and present our clients with the most talented individuals, regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender or disability status.  We assess all prospective candidates on the basis of their experience, motivation, qualifications and a likely ability to succeed in the specified role.  We continually take pains to be aware of and address immediately any conscious or unconscious bias, both within our own and in our clients’ candidate assessment techniques.

Practically, in addition to supporting the aims of the “30% Club” to encourage increased female representation on boards, given the predominance of our work in financial and professional services where there is often a perception of gender imbalance, we aim to ensure at least forty per cent of candidates long or short-listed are female.  That we are able to achieve this aim consistently is a function of the breadth and depth of Sainty, Hird & Partners’ proprietary database, coupled with our collective professional networks, which afford us access to an unusually diverse candidate pool.
