The application of recruitment, training and promotion policies to all individuals will be based on job requirements and the individual’s ability and merits.
All employees of the organisation will be made aware of the provisions of this policy.
Recruitment and Promotion
Advertisements for posts will give sufficiently clear and accurate information to enable potential applicants to assess their own suitability for the post. Information about vacant posts will be provided in such a manner that does not restrict its audience in terms of sex, race, age, marital status, disability, part-time or fixed term contract status, sexual orientation or religion.
Recruitment literature will not imply a preference for one group of applicants unless there is a genuine occupational qualification which limits the post to this particular group in which case this must be clearly stated.
All vacancies will be circulated on our website.
All descriptions and specification for posts will include only requirements that are necessary and justifiable for the effective performance of the job.
All selection will be thorough, conducted against defined criteria and will deal only with the applicant’s suitability for the job. Where it is necessary to ask questions relating to personal circumstance these will be related purely to job requirements and asked to all candidates.
DIVERSE ROLES LTD will not discriminate based on sex, race, marital status, disability, age, part-time or fixed term contact status, sexual orientation or religion in the allocation of duties between employees employed at any level with comparable job descriptions.
DIVERSE ROLES LTD will put in place any reasonable measure and/or adjustments within the workplace for those employees who become disabled during employment or for disabled appointees.
All employees will be considered solely on their merits for career development and promotion with equal opportunities for all.
Employees will be provided with appropriate training regardless of sex, race, marital status, disability, age, part-time or fixed term contract status, sexual orientation or religion.
All employees will be encouraged to discuss their career prospects and training needs with their Line Manager or the HR Department.
Grievances and victimisation
