Giving back


We believe that modern employers have a responsibility not only for the welfare of their own employees, but also a moral duty to wider society. Our teams organise regular Corporate Social Responsibility events, and each year we select a cause for the whole business to support through charitable giving and volunteering. In recent years we are very proud to have supported:

Diversity & Inclusion

SSQ is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity in the labour market to ensure equal opportunities for all. We select candidates based on their ability matched with our clients’ business needs, irrespective of their gender, race, age, nationality, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, religion or belief. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.
