Approximately 70% of our employees are female and this is replicated in our management population with women taking up a similar number of management roles across all disciplines throughout the business. We are working hard on building a strong female talent pipeline to secure our future for those we care for and educate and to continue to make Outcomes First Group a fully inclusive workplace.”
