We have joined the Disability Confident scheme

We have joined the UK Government Disability Confident scheme as level one Disability Confident Committed.

This nationally recognised scheme helps organisations to think differently about the recruitment, retention and development of disabled people and gives employers the support and knowledge to attract disabled talent.

We are signed up to the first level of the Disability Confident journey “Disability Confident – Committed”. Over the next 12 months we will develop their processes to ensure that people with disabilities and long term health conditions feel valued, supported, empowered and fully able to reach their potential in the workplace. By joining we are showing we are dedicated to an inclusive, fair and diverse workplace.

Suzanne Cook, HR Officer comments: “We are delighted to take this first step. This will ensure that we are able to draw from the widest possible pool of talent and secure staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working. We have always been committed to equality of opportunity in our workplace and this scheme allows us to show this to our employees and potential employees – just another reason why Verdant Leisure is a great place to work.”
