Our Commitment to Equality
Totum is committed to supporting equality of opportunity and works towards ensuring that everyone we work with has access to all of our products and services. Understanding the diversity of any “talent pool” is vital in achieving this aim. If we find we are not sourcing or meeting certain types of candidates/backgrounds then we can try and do something about it.
Please be assured that your participation in this exercise is purely voluntary and in no way will the information you provide be linked to your application. We analyse completed forms on a periodic basis, report these to our clients and try to learn from the results.

We take diversity and inclusion seriously and as part of Totum’s commitment to D&I we collect and report on data given by candidates who sign up with Totum on areas including ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation and disability. We have decided to further our commitment by asking the following socio-economic questions. Socio-economic background is defined by the highest earning parent’s occupation, according to the National Statistics Socio-economic Classification (NS-SEC).
*Socio-economic background is the term to refer to the particular set of social and economic circumstances that an individual has come from. It permits
objective discussion of the influence of these circumstances on individuals’ educational and career trajectories; and it can be objectively measured by capturing information on parental occupation and level of education. What was the occupation of your main household earner when you were 14?
