Our Candidate Promise
We’ll do all we can to support you, even before you join us. It’s our way of showing that each and every person is important to us, and that your needs are a real priority to us. We call it ‘The Candidate Promise’. And it works in four ways:
Making things ‘Easy’
We deal with our candidates in an uncomplicated way, and try to make it as simple and efficient as possible for you to apply for jobs.
Our ethics run through everything we do – including our recruitment process. Part of that means we provide advice and support to people in our communities who want to develop their employability and career.
The ‘Personal’ touch
We don’t ‘process our candidates’ – we care for you and your needs. We also work hard to make sure we’re approachable and helpful, by recognising and respecting you for the individual you are.
‘Fair’ for everyone
We select candidates based on merit – and nothing else. We employ fair selection techniques and make sure we provide honest and constructive feedback to everyone. Plus of course, we ensure that our employment policies and practices are inclusive and accessible to all. We’re passionate about inclusion and equal opportunities, and adopt the principles of the 'two ticks' ‘Positive about disability’ symbol. We’re committed to interviewing all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a vacancy and consider people on their abilities.
