Inclusivity Statement

The Community Farm recognises that the farming and environmental sectors are the least diverse in this country. We aim to be an inclusive employer and organisation. Our approach to hiring is changing as we continue to talk and learn about intersectional privilege and discrimination, and we aspire to support a greater plurality of voices in our organisation as this process continues. It is part of our greater ethical mission to ensure that the environment we create at The Farm is welcoming and supportive; this is something we have always strived to uphold, and something that we are always seeking to improve upon.

We take an inclusive approach to recruit people who bring difference and diversity and can be disadvantaged in the recruitment process or are under-represented in our teams. If you are from a background that is under-represented in the agricultural/environmental sector and you would like support to articulate how your experience is transferable to this role, please contact us and we would be pleased to help you think this through.
