At SO we are committed to providing equal opportunities to all employees, contractors, workers and job applicants. We recognise the importance of celebrating diversity and creating an environment where everyone is treated fairly. Developing relationships with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures is intrinsic to our business, with equality and diversity underpinning our vision and strategy. We’ve put policies in place to ensure that we continue to promote diversity, equity and inclusion at SO. We avoid stereotyping and using wording that may discourage groups with a particular protected characteristic from applying to our job advertisements.

In November 2020, we came together with 7 other recruitment companies to discuss the significant underrepresentation of Black talent. Nine months later we joined forces and created Programme One to redefine equal opportunity within our industry. Our strategic ambition is to remove the barriers to the recruitment of 500 more Black recruiters into our sector annually.

" I joined Spencer Ogden as a graduate, after leaving a previous position which I had been in for three years, which had good career progression but was not fulfilling or what I was looking for. Spencer Ogden had fantastic career progression opportunities with continuous training, global travel and earning potential that could not be matched by other industries. The move at the time was a risk for me however the past five years have certainly not disappointed, working my way through the ranks from a trainee to an associate director, I am now managing a team of over 25 consultants.
