Disability Confident Employer

A diverse recruitment strategy

We will regularly review and monitor our recruitment and selection policy to ensure that no job applicant or employee is treated less favourably than another. The results of the monitoring are reported to the board of management on a quarterly basis. 

Opportunities for younger people and promoting social inclusion

Apprenticeships are a great way for the Group to ensure we are training our employees with the specific skills to meet the increasingly diverse needs of our services. We create apprenticeships at various levels, which may be the first job, a career, or development change in your chosen career.

We consider creating apprenticeships when existing employees are promoted to undertake significant role changes or request support for professional qualifications when these meet the criteria of acquiring new skills and developing existing skills. We take our responsibility to develop the skills of young people seriously and our apprenticeship program is always popular.

Project search
