About our client 

Their People Strategy presents a clear picture of how they will achieve their Corporate Plan aim, ‘Be an exceptional place to work that attracts, develops and retains talent’. The Strategy focuses on three key themes that help them to support their colleagues to make a difference to their customers, the communities they serve and to themselves. 


It is important to them 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. This will encourage a culture where all can thrive, acknowledging that everyone is different; what matters to them is that everyone can come to work and feel comfortable to be themselves.

They 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.
