At IEG we are passionate about creating environments where can people can be themselves at work, where individuals are respected and valued for the differences they bring, where people fit together in effective teams, rather than seek to fit in. If, you think differently don’t let that be a barrier to applying for a role with us.

We thrive through embracing our differences including our culture, ethnicity, disability, gender, age, religion and sexual preference.
