Our Values

Our values and behaviours describe how we can all work together to achieve our vision and purpose and make ZSL a great place to work. As we have hundreds of different roles across our science-led conservation charity, the objectives and ‘what’ everyone does can differ from one role the next. But the consistency for us all is how we behave and work with each other.

Collaborative

We bring people together to share expertise

Ethical

We make the right choices

Impactful

We focus on activities that make a positive difference

Inclusive

We value our differences and foster belonging

Innovative

We find new ways to solve problems

Inspiring

We encourage people to take positive action

Diversity and inclusion

We believe diversity is life. We strongly encourage applications from all backgrounds and celebrate the value of having a team of employees with diverse skills, experiences, and heritage. We are committed to ensuring our teams can bring their authentic selves to work without fear of discrimination.

We have active equality networks for our staff with lived experience and those who provide active allyship in Race and Culture, Team Pride, Disability Network, and Menopause Network, complemented by our strategic EDI Steering Group.
