Equal Opportunities & Diversity in the Provision of Recruitment Services : We aim to achieve this with our candidates and clients via a number of methodologies, including Advertising :Advert design and text will be produced in such a way as to not discriminate in any way or be perceived as discriminatory. Wherever possible and appropriate, a diverse range of recruitment media will be used. Suitable candidates will always be selected on the basis of a pre-agreed job specification and/or pre-agreed competencies. Such criteria will not include any requirements that would necessarily limit applicants on the basis of gender, race, colour, age, ethnicity, marital status, family circumstances, disability, sexual orientation, political or religious belief.
The aim is simply to recruit the best person for the job. We will monitor our own recruitment policies and procedures as well as the candidate database to ensure our own compliance. Our policies and procedures will be continually monitored and updated as required.
