• Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

    Recruitment statement

    When we say our people are the heart of our business, we mean it. From the color of your skin and the beliefs you value to the people you love or the tattoos you wear, we champion you for being your authentic self.

At Athlon, we're all about you

Behind the scenes at Athlon, you’ll find a passionate team working to support our customers and our colleagues. We believe that our company culture is powered by who we are, with our diverse backgrounds, skills and cultures enhancing our ability to deliver outstanding customer experiences. Inclusion is the driving force behind our ethos and that’s why we celebrate your individuality, allowing you to truly be yourself at work.

Our working environment

We keep our working environment friendly, open and welcoming, where everyone’s beliefs are respected. Here are just a few examples of how we do that.

  • We take dietary preferences and principles into account in our restaurant menu.
  • There are rooms available for when you need a quiet moment for any reason.
  • Our working environment is fully accessible for all.
  • When you join us, we’ll ask you to agree to act with care and integrity, and to comply with Athlon’s code of conduct and rules.
  • Bullying, discrimination, sexual intimidation, aggressive behavior, violence and other forms of improper conduct are unacceptable inside (and outside) Athlon and will not be tolerated. We do everything we can to make sure that people feel comfortable speaking up about inappropriate behavior, and our confidential advisers are ready to help at any time.

Equal opportunities

To make sure our recruitment, selection and internal advancement processes are truly objective, we have some key principles for equal opportunity.

  • We always want to avoid being unknowingly being guided by the age or social, cultural or ethnic background of candidates. That’s why external candidates’ date of birth, gender and place of birth are not mandatory in CVs.
  • All our vacancies are advertised internally for at least two weeks.
  • We use an assessment process to ensure that our selections are objective.
  • All hiring managers are required to take an Unconscious Bias in Recruitment workshop.
  • We’re open to people who have difficulty accessing mainstream work environments.

Welcoming you to the team

We want to you to feel comfortable at Athlon as soon as possible, so you’ll find a special welcome package waiting for you when you arrive. We’ll also arrange an introductory meeting and welcome presentation to get you inspired and started on the right foot.

Learning and development

We don’t just want you to be happy at Athlon, we want you to grow and thrive. That’s why we offer plenty of opportunity for development with our very own learning platform, where you can choose any training program that’ll help you in your role.

Work life balance

We believe that freedom contributes to a more diverse and inclusive Athlon. What matters is that you work where you are the most productive. The optimal workplace is therefore different for everyone. For example:

  • We have a hybrid working agreement in place, if your role allows you to work hybrid we facilitate this.
  • We respect each other’s differences in our way of working.
