Equality, diversity and inclusion

Costain is an inclusive employer: we promote equality and inclusion from recruitment and selection, through to training and development, promotion, reward, recognition and retirement.

We are fully committed to the elimination of unlawful and unfair discrimination and value the differences that a diverse workforce brings to the organisation. We support our supply chain and encourage companies who work with us to have an active commitment to our approach on equality and inclusion.

We want to be the UK’s leading smart infrastructure solutions company. To accomplish this we must be more diverse. It is well proven that diverse teams are more innovative, creative, as well as having greater understanding of clients, including the everyday users of infrastructure.

We have a clear goal to have a workforce that is representative of society.

We are committed to achieving the FTSE 350 target of at least 33% of our senior management positions being filled by women by 2020. We are also committed to the FTSE 250 target to have at least one BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic) board director by 2024.

We have a strategy that sets out our clear long term goal to have a workforce that is representative of society.
