Working at Labour
The great thing about working for Labour is that we are not powered by profit but by a desire to create a fairer, better society. Our staff are motivated and inspired by the fact that together we can achieve more than we can alone.
Equality and Diversity
The Labour Party is committed to recruit, retain and develop a workforce that reflects the diverse communities that we serve. We ensure that all existing and prospective members of staff are treated in a fair and equal manner. This strong commitment to equality and diversity is embedded within our staff policies and working practices.
The Labour Party is dedicated to taking reasonable steps to remove employment barriers for disabled people. We operate a Disability Confident scheme for all disabled persons who meet the "minimum criteria" of any advertised post.
The Labour party is a proud member of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme. We value our staff regardless of sex, race, ethnic or national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, gender identity, religion or belief, marriage or civil partnership or pregnancy and maternity, and we know our staff will be more productive because of this. It’s the right thing to do but it also makes organisational sense, as people are more productive when they are happy and can be themselves.
Accredited Living Wage employer
We believe that work should be fairly rewarded, not just for our own staff but for families across the country.
The Labour Party offer employees a number of benefits such as a cycle to work scheme and the opportunity to take part in the Tastecard. We offer staff the ability to apply for an interest-free season ticket loan and to join one of our two pension schemes. We also have a generous annual leave scheme, as well as a volunteering days allowance.
Training and Development
At the Labour Party we recognise that our most important resource is our staff, and we are committed to the training and development of our workforce, so that they will gain the necessary skills to reach their full potential. We support this through regular 1-2-1s with line management, on the job coaching and attendance at formal training courses.
At the Labour Party we believe that is it important that your work also has a positive impact on your health and wellbeing. As an organisation we want all of our staff members to be happy, healthy and motivated. We have a number of initiatives to help promote this such as a monthly focus on wellbeing newsletter and a quarterly wellbeing day.
