Looking to Recruit?

If you’re looking to recruit the best people across diverse talent pools and make sure your organisation is recognised as an employer of choice, Proud Employers is here to help.

We help jobseekers find roles with organisations committed to equality for their LGBT staff. We also give organisations a platform to attract diverse staff to their workplaces, and promote their commitment to LGBT inclusion.

Your reputation and association with Stonewall could be the deciding factor which determines whether a high-quality applicant chooses you or a competitor. Proud Employers enables you to demonstrate your commitment to the inclusion and equality of LGBT staff in your workplace, as well as recruit from this group more effectively.

In order to advertise on Proud Employers, organisations must be members of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme – our world-leading employers’ forum for ensuring all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.

We work with over 850 organisations across the private, public and third sector, all of whom share our core belief in the power of a workplace that is truly equal. Through them we've helped create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce.

By only allowing members of the Diversity Champions programme to advertise, we aim to ensure that the roles we advertise are with employers who are truly committed to equality.

At Stonewall, we believe that people perform best when they can be themselves. Proud Employers is here to help LGBT people, as well as allies, find employers who enable them to do that.

Touchstone is a safe place for all our staff and this means feeling safe to be who you really are.
