Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to actively promoting equality, diversity, and inclusivity.

Our approach

We are actively trying to increase the diversity of our staff team. We try to reduce as many barriers as we can for those with a disability. Below are some examples of how we try to do this automatically.

We know that everyone is an individual, so please always tell us what we can do to support you. Here is what we will always do:

  1. share interview questions with you in advance
  2. ensure our panel have good light in the room they are in
  3. let you know who you will meet at your interview
  4. offer a familiarity session on Teams software if you have not used this before

Our brand and our recruitment system (Pinpoint) meet double A accessibility standards.

We welcome approaches from qualified individuals from underrepresented groups, including Black, Asian, and Ethnic minority communities, and those with a disability, to better reflect the community we serve and help broaden our perspectives.

Examples of how we can support you

We share interview questions in advance, we can use sub-titles on Teams, we will ensure our panel have good light in the room they are in, we will not use screen sharing as this makes the individual windows smaller

If you use a screen reader, we can offer an interview on Zoom if this is more compatible with your software. If applying in another way would be easier, we are open to effective ways to do- for example you might want to record your application

We can add more time to your interview so that you are not time pressured

We ensure interviews are in quiet spaces without distractions. If you require additional time for the interview, we can add this

There is no requirement to come to one of our offices for interview, or to be offered a role with us.

We will be as flexible with our timings as we can to accommodate you, and we can offer additional time for your interview

We will be as flexible with our timings as we can to accommodate you

We’ll adjust our process to support you, so for example the interview could be on Teams but without cameras on so you don’t need to look at the screen, or via telephone conferencing

Access to Work

This is a government scheme which supports employees with a disability. We can help you to apply for any funding which might support you to be able to do your job to the best of your ability.

Conditions covered by Access to Work include any disability or health condition that affects your ability to do a job, or means you have to pay work-related costs, for example special computer equipment or travel costs because you can’t use public transport. This includes mental health conditions.

It must also either be likely to last at least a year, or have lasted at least a year already.
