At Defra we want you to experience a respectful, welcoming, and engaging working environment, free from discrimination. We encourage applications from neurodiverse people and believe that it is only through having a mix of ideas and ways of thinking that we will be able to continue our culture of high-quality work.

We have strong staff networks covering mental health, disability, and other needs. We also have a range of special leave policies for hospital appointments and will put reasonable adjustments in place for people who need them.

The department places significant emphasis on talent programmes that help everyone to achieve their full potential. The Civil Service as a whole is committed to providing a work environment free from discrimination, harassment, bullying and victimisation. Support available includes a Bullying and Harassment network and mediation services.
