We have removed “Essential” and “Desirable” from person specs and replaced them with “Skills and Experience that we regard as highly desirable” and “Skills and Experience that we regard as desirable”.
We recruited apprentices using a workshop format avoiding formal interviews to make them less intimidating.
We highlight welcoming applications from the wider community but we also stress that we welcome applications with people with “caring responsibilities’. Another change that we are going to make for the next job advert is to include a statement about being “religion friendly” to increase the reach of the advert.
