The Alliance Network

We work very closely with the Alliance network in the midlands as a co-founding organisation to support, engage and improve LGBTi exposure and opportunities within Professional Services organisations.

We support the alliance by organising and hosting key events attended by many midlands based organisations from small SMEs to large corporates around a variety of key LGBT topics producing useful toolkits for members to take back to their organisations and implement.

Creating Inclusive Cultures

Founded by Charlotte Sweeney OBE, CIC is a collaboration of companies and employers who are committed to realising and implementing the benefits of diversity and inclusion to truly position their cities as thriving business powerhouses.

Hays Directors sit on the leadership teams across CIC’s 3 hubs in Manchester, Leeds and . Areas of focus include improving the visibility and support to BAME professionals, improving organisations’ support around mental health within the workplace and the creation of a junior board which has help city leaders interact with the next generation of workers and help identify what is important to them.

Leadership Through Sport & Business

Hays is proud to work as recruitment partner to Leadership Through Sport & Business. LTSB is a life-changing social enterprise that gives high potential school leavers from disadvantaged backgrounds access to qualifications and careers in accounting, business, and finance.

We host ‘speed interview’ events run by LTSB to which we invite our clients, allowing them to understand more about the work LTSB does and access the cohorts of young people the organisation supports.

Teen Turn

Teen-Turn provides teenage girls with the opportunity to spend two weeks during the summer in a technology career environment through work placements with companies based in Ireland. Hays supports Teen-Turn by engaging with prospective organisations to participate in the programme.

The aim of these ‘Teen-Turnships’ is to enable more girls to explore and gain an interest in technology, which will lead to more women earning technology qualifications – thus meeting a demand for skills that is currently outpacing supply.

Teen-Turn works with schools to identify participants with academic promise who will benefit from the opportunity but are from traditionally disadvantaged communities where third level education is uncommon.

Australian Network on Disability

We are proud to be affiliated with the Australian Network on Disability to help organisations implement processes and strategies to promote the recruitment and retention of people with disability.

Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience

AIME gave us the opportunity to mentor their mentors who improve the pathways to further education and employment for indigenous high school kids. 16 Hays directors have participated in the programme so far.

Pride in Diversity

We are proud to partner with Pride in Diversity, who are specialists in HR, organisational change and diversity and aim to improve LGBTI workplace inclusion.

Aboriginal Employment Strategy

The AES is a 100% Indigenous managed, national, not-for-profit recruitment company. In collborating with a specialist indigenous recruiter, Hays is able to better support our Indigenous candidates’ career searches, whilst providing our clients with top indigenous talent.


Partnering with JobAccess since 2015 has enabled us to promote the 12 month 'Driving Disability' program for employers and to build stronger candidate pipelines with disability employment service providers.
