We have worked hard to create a culture of 'One Team' and have identified the following values and behaviours that we feel are important:
- Open and honest with people

We are committed to equality for all, irrespective of age, race, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, disability, marital status or pregnancy and maternity. We take action to avoid discrimination and aim to have a workforce that reflects the population of our community. We want to be a positive role model for other organisations in the community.
All applicants will be treated equally and fairly throughout the recruitment and selection process. We will take account of any particular needs you advise us of in relation to the recruitment and selection process, such as providing information in Braille or on tape and ensuring a suitable interview venue. All decisions will be made in line with our Recruitment and Selection Policy and will be made on merit, in line with the job and skills requirements set for the vacancy.
We will try to address any issues of under representation through positive action. 'Positive action' relates to the steps that we can take to encourage people from groups with different needs or with a past track record of disadvantage or low participation to apply for jobs.
In recruitment, equality law allows positive action before or at the application stage; for example, we could encourage particular groups to apply.
We are proud to be a Disability Confident employer. This demonstrates our continued commitment:
- to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
- to discuss with disabled employees how we can support them to 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 these commitments work
