Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to actively promoting equality, diversity, and inclusivity.
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:
- share interview questions with you in advance
- ensure our panel have good light in the room they are in
- let you know who you will meet at your interview
- 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
