We embrace the differences we are born with and harness these differences in a way that is beneficial to all.

As an employer we embrace the differences we are born with
We have a number of employee networks which have grown over recent years and have helped NHSBT to tap into resources from employees with shared characteristics such as gender, race, cultural heritage, and disability.
Our Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Employee Network supports NHSBT in its strategic objectives to save and improve patient’s lives. It also helps NHSBT to be a great place to work – by utilising the skills and resources of its BAME employees in order to add value to the organisation.
There is a growing demand for black donors due to the increase in the number of people with sickle cell disease which is the fastest growing genetic disorder in the UK. The BAME Network has set up our successful Donor Ambassador Programme to help recruit a further 40,000 black donors in order to help save lives.
