About the Scottish Parliament

Our people

Our diverse workforce brings a range of experiences and views, which help us work better.

We know that to have a diverse workforce we need to create a working environment where we value and respect every individual's unique role.

Attraction and recruitment

We want to attract a broad range of people to work for the Parliament. To do this, we have an inclusive employment policy.

Diversity staff networks

The Parliament has 6 diversity employee network groups which provide support to people from diverse groups. The networks are a good way to:

  • connect with people from all over the Parliament
  • build contacts
  • share experiences
  • arrange events
  • socialise

All staff can join any network groups.

The Parliament’s networks are:

  • BAME Network - offers support, advice and social connection to colleagues from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds
  • Mental Health Network - aims to make it easier to talk about mental health
  • SPOut LGBT+ Network - develops awareness and understanding of the experiences and challenges of LGBT+ colleagues
  • YP @ SP - supports young staff members and staff who work with young staff members
  • Women's Network - is an inclusive network run by women, for everyone
  • ParliAble Network - supports disabled people
