Equality and Diversity
St Christopher’s recognises the qualities and strengths that a diverse workforce brings to the organisation and we therefore particularly welcome applications from our underrepresented groups from within the local communities and from a range of different cultures and backgrounds.
We have partnered up with a number of external organisations including Disability Confident, Mindful Employer and Stonewall to show our commitment to being the Employer of Choice across our patch and beyond.
As a Disability Confident Committed Employer, we have committed to:
- Ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible
- Communicate and promote vacancies
- Offer an interview to disabled people
- Anticipate and provide reasonable adjustments as required
- Support any existing employee who acquires a disability or long term health condition, enabling them to stay in work
- At least one activity that will make a difference for disabled people
As a Disability Confident Committed Employer, we are dedicated a fair, accessible and inclusive recruitment process. We offer a guaranteed interview under the Disability Confident Scheme to disabled applicants who have demonstrated that they meet the minimum criteria for the role.
If you have a disability, whether or not you wish to apply for a role under the scheme, please let us know if you require any adjustments or assistance to enable you to fully participate in the process.
As a Mindful Employer, we are committed to increasing mental health at work.
It is an initiative that supports employers signed up to the Mindful Employer Charter to recruit and retain staff and provide them with the best possible support.
As a Stonewall Diversity Champion, we are supported and regularly advised on how to support LGBT equality across the organisation.
