We positively celebrate Diversity & Inclusion in the Mark Allen Group. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds because it makes our company stronger.

Studies have shown that women and people within ethnic minority groups are less likely to apply for jobs unless they meet every single qualification.

You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles
