LGBTIQA+ Employment

LGBTIQA+* diversity is welcomed and celebrated by MatchWorks.

MatchWorks are members of the Welcome Here Project. Our offices provide a safe, inclusive and welcoming space for all LGBTIQA+ job seekers and employers.

Building a diverse and welcoming workplace

The LGBTIQA+ community often experience invisibility, discrimination and exclusion in the workplace. Our goal is to be part of the solution to change this.

Our staff have completed Rainbow 101 Training to better support the LGBTIQA+ community.

We can also deliver Rainbow Training to employers who value diversity in their teams.
