Everyone is equal. Full stop

At Shield Safety, we don’t just say we’re 100% committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, we do something about it.

We offer a range of family-friendly and inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums and support for employees from different backgrounds.

We also welcome and encourage job applications from people from every type of background, and especially those from underrepresented groups.

No job applicant, temporary worker or employee will ever receive less favourable treatment from us because of their age, disability, gender or transgender status, race and ethnicity, religion and belief, marriage or civil partnership status or sexual orientation.

We love our planet and its people

Our local community, next generation of talent and the world we inhabit are all incredibly important to us. That’s why we do all of this and so much more:

North West Air Ambulance

From fun runs to fancy dress Fridays, bake offs to bungee jumping, we regularly organise fundraising events to support the magnificent work of our charity partner – North West Air Ambulance.

Placements and career talks

As part of our graduate training programme, we offer placements to students from all over the world to help kick-start their careers. We also work with universities and the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health to deliver career talks to students throughout the year.

Saving paper, fighting food waste

We’re proud to be a paperless office, run an effective recycling scheme and, most importantly of all, provide software that saves thousands of tonnes of paper every year. On top of this, we work with the non-profit organisations WRAP and New Food to prevent food waste.
