Be yourself at home

Home Group is committed to tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but for our colleagues too! We?re super proud of our Internal Diversity Networks (Multicultural, LGBTQIA+ and Disability) which support colleagues from different backgrounds to be their true selves.

This is because these groups are currently underrepresented amongst our colleagues.  

We recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work!
