The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company’s equal opportunities policy

It is our policy to provide an equal opportunity to all, irrespective of:

  • socio-economic background or class

  • gender, including gender reassignment

  • marital or civil partnership status

  • having or not having dependents

  • religious belief or political opinion

  • race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, being an Irish traveller)

  • disability

  • sexual orientation

  • age

We believe that a diverse workforce is a positive benefit in the creation of new work because it brings a diversity of experience bringing new skills and richer solutions to what we make and, thereby, allowing us to grow as a company.

We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All members and employees of the company will be treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds. Decisions on employment and or membership will be made objectively, without unlawful discrimination, and based on aptitude and ability.

We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in all our activities will benefit the organisation. Our equal opportunities policy will help members to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the members will be utilised fully to maximise the effectiveness of the organisation.

The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co recognises that there is a statutory duty under the NI Act 1998, to implement an equal opportunities policy. This policy applies to applicants for employment, volunteers and members of the group alike.

The Rude Mechanical Theatre Co is committed to the principles and practice of Equality and values the diversity of the local population. We want our services, facilities and resources to be accessible and useful to every citizen regardless of gender, age, ethnic origin, religious belief, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or any other individual characteristic which may unfairly affect a person’s opportunities in life.
