Our aim is to achieve a workforce that reflects the local population, providing the right balance of skills and experience to deliver the highest quality of service.
We aim to achieve equality of employment opportunities by ensuring that full and fair consideration is given to all applications, and we welcome candidates of any age, sex, race, religious belief and ability.
We have been recognised for our efforts in actively promoting equal opportunities by the ‘Disability Confident’ scheme, which outlines the following principles:
- To interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider on ability
- To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what we can do to make sure employees can develop and use their abilities
- To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
- To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make our commitments work
- Each year, to review the commitments and what has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and let the Employment Service know about progress and future plans
We continually monitor our Equality Policies and Procedures ensuring that they are in line with government legislation and best practice.
We thank you for your interest in working for St Leger Homes and look forward to receiving an application from you.
St Leger Homes is committed to supporting ex-offenders to gain employment as we believe this is the best way to prevent re-offending.
We actively promote equality of opportunity for all who have the right mix of talent, skills and potential. We welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with criminal records.
You will not be required to disclose any convictions on the application form as we have signed up to the national campaign to ‘Ban the Box’.
We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications and experience.
At the interview stage, we only ask job candidates to tell us about ‘unspent’ convictions as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. We only take into account unspent convictions, when making recruitment decisions, where the ‘unspent’ convictions are relevant to the post.
Some posts may be subject to checks by The Disclosure and Barring Service for safeguarding purposes. These checks are made once a provisional offer of employment has been made.
