Equality and diversity policy

As an organisation recruiting on behalf of the charitable sector we are wholly committed to equal opportunities for all of the people we come into contact with.

When recruiting for fundraising roles we assess candidates based on their competencies and client requirements, irrespective of gender, age, ethnic or national origin, marital status, religion, sexual orientation or disability.

We have pledged to do the following to increase equal opportunities:

  • We will challenge unnecessary requirements on your JDs that will prevent sections of society from applying for roles
  • We will only be submitting anonymised CVs in the future, removing anything highlighting protected characteristics
  • We will ask you what your organisation and the role needs, and submit people who we know are capable of doing the job based on their skills and experience
  • We commit to annual events on inclusion in the sector to ensure best practice is shared

This is our pledge and I ask our charity clients, candidates and fellow recruitment agencies supporting the charity sector to join us and do the same and help improve equal opportunities across the sector.
