What equality, diversity and inclusion means at Arriva Rail London

Equality: We do not discriminate based on any individual characteristic and employees should expect this in all aspects of their work lives.

Diversity: We actively seek out and value difference. We want our workforce to reflect the wide range of communities we serve, so we can serve them even better.

Inclusion: We are working to create a culture in which each employee feels welcome and that they belong. All employees should feel they can flourish and progress.

An inclusive and diverse team

We are constantly striving at ARL to become an even more diverse and inclusive place to work where everyone feels valued, supported, and empowered to grow and develop, where their ideas for improvement are harnessed.

A diverse team helps us provide better services and brings different insights, experiences and needs, so we are better able to serve the needs and interests of our passengers and clients.

We want all employees to be comfortable being themselves at work and we recognise that being confident in who you are positively impacts wellbeing and ability to be your best.

ARL has an ED&I steering group and a Parents and Carers network. The groups are owned and led by employees who directly contribute to, influence and shape our approach to inclusion.

Reflecting the communities we serve

Our ambition is to become an industry-leading organisation, known as a fair and equal employer, a great place to work and an organisation that attracts the best talent.

We want to attract more people early in their careers, retain our best people and increase the representation of underrepresented groups to broaden the skills, perspectives, and experiences of our workforce.
