Responsibility And Diversity

Responsibility and diversity have real meaning for TRL. We depend on our workforce to bring creativity, disruptive thinking and boldness to our cutting-edge research and programmes, so we need people with a whole world of experience to contribute to our breadth of outlook.  Please read our Equality Diversity & Inclusion Statement.


A positive, inspiring culture is our lifeblood. We are constantly looking to the future, learning from experience and making connections between industries, projects and discoveries, so we need a working environment that helps everyone feel part of one team, engaged and focused. We have always encouraged a flexible working approach. During the pandemic we pursued the benefits of hybrid working. With input from our Employee Council, we have a policy that empowers people to work from wherever they thrive.


Professional Development

Our people’s credentials and skills underpin our reputation and success, so we are happy to invest in training and associations that keep everyone at the forefront of their specialism.

Recruitment Agencies Please Note…

TRL does not accept speculative CVs from agencies under any circumstance. Unsolicited CVs will be treated as the property of TRL and any associated Terms & Conditions associated with such CVs will be considered null and void. Please do not send us CVs or make representations on behalf of a candidate unless a representative from HR has explicitly requested you to do so in support of a specific vacancy. 

As we have a proactive approach to sourcing talent, we also ask that you do not claim to have any association or relationship with TRL where none exists. We will not be held liable for commissions or other charges in the event we have contact with a candidate who has previously had their details sent to TRL, and where no explicit agreement for supply of agency services is in place.
