Buddy scheme

One-to-one support provided to potential new recruits partaking in the insight programme. Candidates are matched with an appropriate buddy, depending on the level of support they require, such as their first language. The buddy relationship gives candidates the confidence to progress through all stages of the recruitment process, as well as their first few weeks of employment.

Recruitment/promotions seminars and workshops

Inputs usually lasting a couple of hours whereby candidates get an opportunity to learn about the different elements of recruitment processes. These are a great opportunity to ask questions about what roles and recruitment processes entail as well as to people in the roles share their experiences.

Reasonable adjustments

Through the Disability Confident campaign we are working to remove barriers, increase understanding and ensure that people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations. We look to accommodate requests for reasonable adjustments where possible throughout our recruitment and promotions processes and encourage anyone requiring reasonable adjustments to disclose this at the earliest opportunity.
