We encourage our people to bring their whole selves to work, and though our flexibility practices find the right balance to thrive in their career and life.
Not only are we an AWEI Bronze Employer, we’re also a Workplace Gender Equality Agency Employer of Choice and are proud to say that all our people are paid fairly and equitably, without any gender bias.

Embracing inclusivity and creating a genuine feeling of belonging is at the heart of our culture, which we believe has a lot to do with us achieving 88% employee engagement last year, putting us in the top 2% of companies globally.
We embrace our differences because we value the diverse perspectives that come from different backgrounds and experiences. Our leaders support equal opportunity and equal access to career development and benefits.
As part of our Diversity & Inclusion Strategy we have an LGBTI working group, which is responsible for ensuring a lens of inclusion and support is focused across every aspect of our business. We also have our Allies Network, Left, Right & Scentre, which comprises both LGBTI community members and supporters.















Christopher Zerial – Centre Manager & LGBTI Inclusion Lead
When stepping into the role of lead in the space of LGBTI Inclusion, part of me was terrified that I had just made the worst career mistake of my life whilst the other half of me was jumping up and down with excitement.
The reality is that I could not have made a better decision. During my time as being ‘out’ at Scentre Group, I have received nothing but overt support and encouragement. So much so that I have been promoted twice during this period.
I am most proud of the work we have done around our first ever Gender Transition and the subsequent policy that we released in addition to our recognition as a Bronze tier employer after only 18 months into our strategy. At Scentre Group, LGBTI inclusion is more than words on a page – we life and we breath it.
