Equal Opportunities

The CMV Group acknowledges that the industries in which we operate traditionally employ a predominately male workforce, and we remain firmly committed to improving the gender balance within our businesses.

In 2022, we recommenced our annual CMV Group Women’s Night which is aimed at bringing together our female employees to be inspired and connect with each other.

We value the contribution that all employees make to our business and recognise the inherent benefits of a diverse and inclusive workforce. Our managers are trained in behavioural and skilled based recruitment, selection and performance practices to ensure a consistent set of non-discriminatory criteria is utilised to achieve equal opportunities for our employees. Additionally, these processes are underpinned by our company values which include mutual respect, encouraging fairness, kindness and tolerance.
