Equal opportunities

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer, and welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates.

Recruitment checks

As a responsible employer we adhere to safe recruitment practice and all our employees are subject to background checking during the recruitment process, particularly when the role involves unsupervised access to vulnerable adults. This involves the checking of official registers (e.g. DBS Checks), employment references, qualifications, gaps in employment and appropriate interview questioning.

Right to work in the UK

Under Section 8 of the Asylum and Immigration Act, we, as a responsible employer need to ensure that we do not employ anyone illegally. To avoid discrimination we treat all job applicants equally. We therefore ask all candidates selected for interview to bring original documentation to show their Right to Work in the UK and a copy of these will be taken.
