Monitoring & Review

This policy will be monitored periodically by the directors to judge its effectiveness. The firm has appointed Mark Hagyard, Managing Director, to be responsible for the operation of the policy. In particular, the directors will monitor the ethnic and gender composition of existing staff and of applicants for jobs (including promotion), and the number of people with disabilities within these groups, and will review its equal opportunities policy in accordance with the results shown by the monitoring.

If changes are required, the directors will implement them.
