The work we do at Spike Island benefits greatly from the range of perspectives and skills that having a diverse team brings. We believe our staff should reflect the variety of identities and experiences in Bristol, and we are actively engaging in ways to make our recruitment processes more inclusive for all.
In 2022, we became a Disability Confident employer, which included working with WECIL (West of England Centre for Inclusive Learning) to review our recruitment policies and the accessibility of our building. We also developed an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion taskforce that meets regularly throughout the year to discuss and implement organisational changes that focus on underrepresented groups in the sector and reinforce our commitment to anti-racism.
As part of this, we have committed to publicly sharing our Workforce demographics data so that any changes in our workforce can be seen below.
