Recruiting and retaining best talent

As an inclusive employer, we are devoted to supporting our people and potential employees who are or may become disabled or may need a reasonable adjustment to address a challenge or difficulty at work.

If you feel that you need support or require an adjustment whether this  be at any point during the recruitment process, or upon joining us, temporary or permanently, we encourage you to inform us in confidence so that we can support you in the best way possible.

We want you to perform you your best at every stage of the employee lifecycle. 

During the recruitment process, we will not ask questions about your health or disability, any questions we do ask during the selection process will only relate to the impact during recruitment for the purposes of making adjustments. We will ask each candidate/employee that requests adjustments what works best for them, so that you can understand how to support you effectively
