Promoting a diverse workforce
We are committed to encouraging people to think more deeply about the wonders and applications of science and we are looking for staff who share and support this mission, whatever their professional background or role in the organisation.
We recognise that we are a predominantly white workforce and are actively encouraging applicants from Minority Ethnic backgrounds in order to enhance the diversity of our workforce. We are committed to maintaining an environment where diversity is celebrated and everyone is treated fairly, regardless of age, gender, gender reassignment, disability, ethnic origin, religious belief, sexual orientation, or marital status. We monitor all stages of our recruitment process to ensure equality of opportunity and therefore ask that all candidates complete a Equalities Monitoring form when applying for roles with us. The information provided is only seen by Human Resources and if candidates choose not to disclose some or all of the information this will not affect their application in any way.

We are willing to consider flexible working arrangements for any role. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a query about this.
In accordance with our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 we are committed to making reasonable adjustments to allow full participation in the recruitment process.
If you have difficulty completing our application form due to a disability, then please contact our HR team email@example.com or call 020 7670 2907 to discuss potential alternative arrangements.
We ask that you inform us of any requirements when you complete the Equalities Monitoring form, but we will also check this again if you are shortlisted for interview. Examples of reasonable adjustments might include additional time for written tests, or providing equipment or assistance to facilitate your participation in the interview process.
Recruitment of ex-offenders
The Ri welcomes applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications and experience. Having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offences.
We ask candidates for all positions to complete a convictions declaration. Where the role will entail working directly with children and young people, or provides unrestricted access to their data, the position will usually be exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2013 and we will ask that all convictions which are not ‘protected’ are disclosed. For all other positions we request that only unspent convictions are disclosed. Full guidance on the recruitment of ex-offenders may be viewed here. Failure to disclose a conviction at application stage will result in an automatic disqualification from the post applied for and all future positions with the Ri
