NIE Networks has been awarded a charter mark by Diversity Mark NI in recognition of its commitment to gender balance and diversity.

The company will have new targets including creating an internal female mentor programme and developing menopause, breastfeeding and IVF guidelines.

Paula Leathem, senior HR business partner at NIE Networks, said there had been a shift in the demographic of employees joining the organisation.

"We believe through the development of NIE Networks' bespoke diversity and inclusion guidelines that we are sending out a clear and positive message that we are committed to advancing our current female employees and those of the future," she said.

NIE Networks is filling roles including communication, HR and apprenticeships.
