At Orpheus, we are committed to advancing equality of opportunity, respecting and celebrating difference, eliminating discrimination, harassment and victimisation and fostering good relations between all who work, learn or use our services. We want to ensure we recruit the full diversity of people at Orpheus and all are able to reach their full potential.

We have four diversity champions at the Orpheus Centre:

  • BAME – Karene Eyiah
  • LGBTQIA+ – Simon Parratt
  • Ability/Disability – Vacant
  • Wellbeing – Jack Betteridge

Our diversity champions act as a friendly face for current staff and people considering working at the Orpheus Centre to ask questions or raise concerns.

The Orpheus Centre is proud to be a disability confident employer.

We have made a positive commitment to employing disabled people. Reasonable adjustments will be made to the recruitment procedure as required in consultation with the applicant to ensure no-one is disadvantaged because of their disability. If a disabled person is selected for a position, reasonable adjustments will be made to the workplace, including premises and equipment, work duties and practices or policies, as appropriate. All disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the role as set out in the role profile and person specification will be guaranteed an interview.

As a Disability Confident Employer, we are:

  •  challenging attitudes towards disability
  • increasing understanding of disability
  • removing barriers to disabled people and those with long-term health conditions
  • ensuring that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspiration
