At The Jo Cox Foundation we are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, promoting it both within our staff team and across our programmes.
In 2022, we were awarded the TPP Inclusive Recruitment Grant which supported us to develop a more inclusive recruitment process. After those changes were implemented, feedback from interviewed candidates showed:
- 100% candidates said the application process was inclusive and would appeal to a diverse range of candidates.
- 100% felt comfortable and able to share their answers openly and honestly.
- No candidates experienced any barriers or challenges throughout the process.
Key elements to our recruitment and interview process:
- We are an equal opportunities employer and actively encourage applicants from people of all backgrounds. We use a blind recruitment process when shortlisting applicants for interview to ensure that all applicants receive equal treatment.
- We are a Disability Confident employer. Any candidate who indicates that they have a disability when applying and meets the criteria set out in the ‘About You’ section of a job description will be guaranteed an interview for the job for which they are applying.
- As standard, we send out all questions 30 minutes prior to the interview so that candidates can come to the interview feeling prepared.
- We will let all candidates know the outcome of their application. If your application is unsuccessful we will take the time to get in touch and let you know this. We provide feedback – via email or phone call depending on preference – for candidates who are unsuccessful after the interview stage.
Less than 6% of people with a learning difficulty are in paid employment despite the fact that over 65% want to work. However, work experience placements for people with SEND increase chances of employment by 100%.
This is why we have partnered with Talentino to offer work placements for SEND students through their programme.
