  • I identify as Transgender or I am currently affirming my gender, do I need to share this information in the recruitment process?

    This is entirely up to you, however if you disclose this throughout the recruitment process please know that this will not disadvantage you in our process.


    At BHP, we want our people to feel safe and comfortable to bring their whole selves to work. We firmly believe that no employee or candidate should feel pressured to hide who they are – be it their gender identity, sex or sexual orientation.

  • Why do you ask personal questions that would identify a person’s gender, ethnicity or disability and how is this data used?
    Understanding these aspects of diversity allows us to take an intersectional approach to inclusion and diversity, recognising that different aspects of diversity can overlap to compound disadvantage and discrimination. We use this information to ensure our recruitment practices are fair and equitable for everyone.
