We hire staff and accept volunteers the following basis:
We obey the law.
If a DBS check or a skill or qualification is needed (e.g. a driving licence or a degree) then it must be proven before starting work.
We do not discriminate against any candidates because of their sexual orientation, physical or mental health conditions, age, creed, skin colour or anything else. For non-specialist roles we take the first person we can accommodate.
We have recruited people from responses to our adverts, job centres, government work schemes, the probation service, disabled people’s groups, other charity referrals and walk in’s off the street.
We have a track record in taking on people with disabilities, including wheelchair users.
We have a track record in taking on people with accompanying carers.
We do not tolerate criminal behaviour in our premises.
If folks mess up at work, we will give training and guidance if appropriate. However, people have been sacked for not working properly.
We don’t gossip or break confidences.
We try to arrange things to give people a second chance in recruitment and at work.
How many of these things does your employer do?
