The Group

eQS’s founding principle is to create a ‘business that does good’ and the company has been driven by that ethos since 2006. Together, the Group’s portfolio of diversity, inclusion and wellbeing businesses comprise the UK’s leading Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DEI) specialists. Now nearly 100-strong, the eQS workforce are united in a common goal: removing barriers to education, work and life, and transforming internal cultures to create social and business benefits on a national scale.

eQS has initiated a Group-wide DEI review, designed and delivered by our own workplace DEI division, EW Group and Challenge Consultancy. This project includes a comprehensive diversity audit across all areas of the business from recruitment, management, policies, communications, training and more to ensure all our practices are inclusive and support diverse talent.

Black, Asian, minority ethnic and disabled people are currently underrepresented at eQS and are particularly encouraged to apply.
