Diversity and inclusion

United Utilities is an equal opportunities employer

We are committed to providing a supportive and non-discriminatory working environment for all our colleagues. We aim to have a workforce that is representative of our region and customer base. We want to attract the best talent and recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion in achieving that aim.

What does being diverse and inclusive mean in practice?

Diversity is 'difference'. We see it as the unique characteristics of an individual and the qualities, experience, background and approach they bring.

Inclusion is 'valuing difference'. In our company it describes a working environment where different ways of looking at the world are valued. Different ways of looking at the world are valued and people are free to contribute to their full potential.

Within our fully inclusive workplace we aim to create an environment where people are treated fairly, based on their capability and contribution.

Wherever possible we provide training and development opportunities for disabled people so they can make best use of their skills.
