Diversity and inclusion

The ESM recognises that a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion is not simply good for business; but essential to business success.

Our working environment is open and collaborative and we actively embrace diversity in how we work together and contribute to our shared objectives.

Diversity and inclusion

Therefore, we aim to provide equal opportunity to all candidates irrespective of their gender, nationality, age, race, culture, education, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or disability. We strongly believe in the creative power achieved when people from various backgrounds are united in their efforts.

For us, creating a truly diverse and inclusive environment starts with recruitment. We actively encourage all suitably qualified and experienced candidates to apply. All our vacancies are also open to secondments, for a period of one to three years.

The ESM encourages and facilitates work/life balance. We support flexible working arrangements, enabling an inclusive work environment.

We also care about smooth on-boarding within the ESM. We make sure new staff members integrate into the ESM culture through various social events, cultural activities, or internal sports clubs.

Ethics and integrity

Ethics and integrity are the foundation of the ESM institutional culture.

Every staff member at the ESM must observe the highest standards of professional ethics and perform their duties in a manner that safeguards and enhances public confidence in their integrity and the integrity of the ESM.

Ethics and integrity

Our management actively promotes and develops a culture of respect and trust.
