Our fundamental belief is that everyone deserves to realise their full potential. We recognise the influence we have in levelling the playing field and providing people with access to opportunities they may have otherwise not been afforded. We want to be a force for good and do what we think is right in using our position to open doors that may otherwise have been closed.
As part of our ongoing mission to make work an adventure, we want to ensure we are giving equal opportunities to all job seekers who use our platform. We sent out an anonymous survey to our candidate pool who have successfully been placed at jobs through our platform to get a better insight of the demographic breakdown. The data may not be entirely representative as it is based on the 133 responses we received. We will continue to conduct these surveys and update the data accordingly.
We are dedicated to inclusivity
We know how it feels to be part of a team and “find your people”. We also know how it feels to be excluded, left out of the joke. Inclusivity, to us, is absolutely crucial if we have any hope of achieving our diversity goals. We’re developing initiatives that focus on creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels heard, respected and welcomed. This means in practice:
We are determined to keep learning
We’re on a journey – not a sprint or marathon. We know we’re not where we’d like to be yet and for us that’s OK, as long as we keep going. We plan to draw upon our values and unique DNA to keep us going and never give up; we will not be scared of failing, will remain curious and eager to continue learning and challenge what we think we know, and as a grounded and humble team we will not assume we know everything or know best – we’ll be open to being educated by others and self improvement. We hope that these aspects of who we are will enable us to be responsible in this space, and use our influence to truly do good.
