As a company offering recruitment services, we are responsible for assisting individuals in realizing their career goals and helping companies find the best people for their job vacancies. Beyond that, however, we are also responsible for promoting diversity and equality into the sectors we cater to.
We strongly advocate for diversity and equality in different ways. To start with, among our workforce we make sure to hire and retain talents from different backgrounds, showing our commitment to providing equal employment opportunity for all. We complement this with a work environment and culture that values respect and does not tolerate discrimination and harassment.
To the candidates we assist, we make sure that our decision on who to accept in our training program is based on individual qualifications and not on factors like race and ethnic origin, colour, religion, and gender. Likewise, we actively support advocacies related to workplace diversity and equal employment opportunities.
As we have already mentioned, we help candidates regardless of their race and ethnic origin, colour, religion, and gender. Likewise, the aforesaid factors do not affect our decision on who to get on board.
Since the establishment of our recruitment, we have closely observed and monitored the candidates we have accepted and helped find work. Based on our records, we have sponsored the training of about 45% of candidates from the Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups and also assisted approximately 51% of individuals from the same groups in securing full time work in various companies throughout the UK.
We are working on bringing some of our personnel support and even our sponsored trainings to non-profit organisations that actively help young individuals from BAME backgrounds who encounter barriers that prevent them from receiving pre-employment support and sector-focused training. We hope that when this project rolls out, it will aid in improving the skills and work preparedness of young people from BAME backgrounds.
