Wilton Park’s highly experienced staff consists of four dedicated teams: Corporate Services, Delivery, Operations and Policy. Our colleagues range from chefs and dining room personnel to policy researchers and programme directors, all working together to create the perfect environment for high-level debate and informal networking which make our residential events so valuable. These teams regularly recreate the unique style of our events in London and overseas.
The rules for recruitment and management of staff create an inclusive culture in which diversity is fully valued; appointment and advancement is based on merit: there is no discrimination on grounds of gender, age; being or becoming a transsexual person; being married or in a civil partnership; being pregnant or on maternity leave; race, including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin; religion, belief or lack of religion or belief; sex; and sexual orientation. We offer maternity, adoption or shared parental leave of up to 26 weeks full pay followed by 13 weeks of statutory pay and a further 13 weeks unpaid, and paternity leave of 2 weeks full pay.
There is a shared sense of pride and purpose among colleagues, most of whom are from the local community, which is evident in the longevity of service of our staff members (average: eight years). Our collaborative team approach enables us to maintain the highest quality in every service we provide. As well as employing permanent staff, we are committed to the Government Apprentice Scheme.
We have the privilege of working as an Executive Agency of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). We promote peace, wealth and fairness in the world, with beautiful surroundings, interesting clients, and motivated colleagues.
