Being together and being different makes us better

AXA prides itself on being an inclusive employer, so during the application process we will ask for some Equal Opportunities data purely for equality monitoring purposes. The answers received are completely anonymised and will therefore never be used for recruitment purposes. AXA only ever sees a percentage based outcome and this can never be attributed to a specific application.
