Equity, Diversity & Inclusion at Pion
Because this part deserves a place at the top of the job ad…

Here at Pion, we’re working hard to grow an inclusive, diverse and respectful group of people we’re proud of. Accountability plays a big role in our company values, and we’re totally honest, open and transparent about our ED&I efforts. This is why we’ve made our commitments and internal statistics visible for everyone to see here. Our ever-evolving culture is defined by our people, and it’s all part of #LifeAtSB.

Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet 60% of the requirements, women and those in underrepresented groups tend to only apply when they tick every box. We don’t think you should have to tick every box. We value your uniqueness, and it goes without saying that all applications are welcome, even if you don’t think you fit the criteria.
