We seek to represent the communities we serve in the makeup of our organisation.

By employing people from our communities we enhance our organisation’s knowledge of our local communities. We also contribute to the economic growth of our communities by providing local jobs for local people.

However, those who are in the armed forces are exempt from having to live in the West Midlands area.
