20% of employees who responded to the survey were in the age bracket 25-34 years old. The firm is committed to ensuring an age diverse workforce by employing apprentices and with some employees working beyond state pension age.
61% of the employees who completed the survey were female, 36% were male and 3% preferred not to say.
92% of the employees who completed the survey considered themselves as their registered sex at birth, 2% did not and 6% preferred not to say.
