Unicard is happy to recognise the skills and attributes that former Armed Forces personnel bring, and we have amongst our team’s former veterans and reservists. We also hire from other branches of disciplined government services such as Police, Ambulance and Fire Services both active and reservist. The family feel of Unicard helps settle and integrate our former services personnel very quickly.
LGBT+ Friends Network
Unicard recognise the need to support our colleagues on lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT+) matters, whatever their background and wherever they are. We encourage inclusion and celebrate diversity at work and in the community – all part of our approach to support our people to be at their best and have a great experience working here, recognising that we can play a part in making a positive difference to our workplace, to our customers and to the communities we’re part of.
Disability does not mean inability. Unicard champion an inclusive workplace that drives, supports & enables understanding of disability, allowing every colleague to thrive, without exception. We do this by: Providing readily available support for people directly & indirectly affected by all types of disability. We actively seek to identify and break down any barriers and stigmas in this regard.
