Diversity & Inclusion

We're making constant assessments to ensure we provide fair and equal access for all.

We believe that all current and future employees should have fair and equal access to all opportunities within Zoopla, regardless of age, sexual orientation, gender, disability, race, nationality, ethnic origin, membership of trade union, religion or belief.

Initiatives

How we're making an impact

Here are some diversity and inclusion initiatives that we’re most proud of:

We've achieved

Mental health awareness

To help promote improved mental wellbeing throughout the business, we are rolling out a programme of mental health awareness training in partnership with Mind for all people managers.

Apprenticeships

Through The Apprenticeship Levy, we offer employees the chance to obtain qualifications up to a master’s degree level in relevant subjects for their roles here at Zoopla.

Generating a feedback culture

We undertake employee surveys twice a year, run mini ‘pulse’ questionnaires every two months, and host “ask HR” sessions every week. All of this is to ensure we stay on top of maintaining a positive working environment and alert us to any improvements that need to be made.

Diversity training

We run an internal training programme for our people managers to ensure they fully understand the principles of diversity and inclusion and to make sure there is consistency across the board.

Gender pay analysis

We run regular data analysis sessions to ensure there is no pay inequality on a role-by-role basis at Zoopla. We are also working internally to tackle the issue of salary disparity.

Flexible working that is widely available

We’re reviewing all our working policies and piloting new programmes in areas of the business not currently offering flexible or part-time opportunities.

Mentoring programme

We’re in the process of establishing a formal mentoring programme for all our colleagues. We’re very excited about the scheme, which will ensure all our employees have the support of a role model to help them realise their full potential.

Women in Tech

Tech She Can Charter

Zoopla is a founder member of The Tech She Can Charter, launched in a bid to increase the number of women entering the technology sector and the number of girls choosing to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and careers in technology.

The charter aims to tackle the root cause of the gender disparity in technology at a societal level, by inspiring and educating young girls and women to get into tech careers and share best practice across the other organisations involved.

This working group of businesses, which includes peers from Google, PwC, Oxfam and the Girl Guides, have united to promote STEM subjects and women in tech to create more diversity in the industry and build a future talent pipeline.

It recently created a manifesto to target schools in the Government’s social mobility 'cold spots', celebrate successful women in tech as role models and provide toolkits to help teachers throughout the UK educate pupils about working in tech .

We are incredibly proud to be part of such a significant charter and delighted that our Head of Talent is responsible for helping introduce young girls to the breadth of career opportunities available in technology, as well as encouraging over 400 schools to deliver the Tech She Can lesson plans.
