Equality within employment is a right according to law. LGBT people are making advances towards achieving equality and the public consciousness has, over the last few years, shifted in a more positive direction. As an indication of these changing attitudes, hundreds of employers, including prominent graduate recruiters, have signed up to be ‘diversity champions’ with the campaigning organisation, Stonewall.

The following sites and organisations provide information and advice about your rights and help with finding LGBT-friendly employers and jobs.



The University of Kent has now joined Stonewall's Diversity Champions programme. The gay equality charity promotes a good working environment for all existing and potential employees and to ensure equal treatment for those who are lesbian, gay and bisexual.
