Diversity & Inclusion

Did you know 15% of people in the world experience some form of disability?​

In today’s connected world, access to technology is central to the way we operate, and it is fundamental to a more equitable future. Accessibility is the vehicle for inclusion of people with disabilities.

With a female founder who has a disability its no surprise that uniqueness and diversity are a huge part of who we are at Appetite.

These are the key things we want our team to feel whilst working at Appetite.

We’re passionate about making Appetite a place where everyone feels they cannot just thrive but belong too. Not just because it’s the right thing to do. But because we believe a more diverse, inclusive team is a higher performing happier one.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It​

As well as our range of inclusive policies, we pride ourselves on our alignment with important organisations committed to shared goals.


"I’m working hard to create the kind purposeful business I always wanted Appetite to be."

"We are building an inclusive team that represents lots of different kinds of people with the right competencies. For anyone, from any background. Where our differences are welcomed, respected, and talent nurtured. People who add to our culture and don’t simply just fit in. Having this focus has allowed us to bring different thinking to our customers and deliver better results. For them to feel assured that we will look out for them too. I’m working hard to create the kind purposeful business I always wanted Appetite to be. It’s simply the right thing to do."
