It is important to us that they have a diverse workforce, representative of the communities they serve. Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) to them means colleagues living their values, dedicated to doing the right thing and exercising good judgement.

Our client will ensure that their recruitment process is inclusive and accessible and they will interview applicants with a disability if they meet the essential criteria for a role. They will also support existing colleagues with a disability or long-term health condition enabling them to stay in work, making reasonable adjustments if necessary
