We welcome applications from all….
EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We’re committed to the fair treatment of our staff and to employing talented people from all backgrounds and walks of life. We welcome applications from all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, age, race (including caste), colour, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability or gender re-assignment.
We actively promote equality of opportunity for all with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and welcome applications from a wide range of candidates, including those with a background of offending or with a criminal record. Having a criminal record doesn’t necessarily bar you from working at St Andrew’s Hospice – we will risk assess each situation on an individual basis.
For further information, please view our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy, Recruitment of Ex-Offenders Policy, and How we manage your information If the role you are applying for needs a DBS check.

CHARTER FOR EMPLOYESS – POSTIVE ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH
As an employer we recognise that in the UK, people are experiencing mental health continue to report stigma and discrimination at work. Having signed the ‘Charter for Employers Positive about Mental Health’, we are committed to creating a supportive open culture, where colleagues feel able to talk about mental health confidentially, and aspire to appropriately support the mental wellbeing of all staff.
As an Employer, we have made an on-going commitment to:
• Provide on-judgemental and proactive support to staff experiencing mental ill health
• Not make assumptions about a person with a mental health condition and their ability to work.
• Be positive and enabling towards all employers and job applications with a mental health condition.
• Support line managers in managing mental health in the workplace.
• Ensure we are fair in the recruitment of new staff in accordance with the Equality Act (2010).
• Make it clear that people who have experience mental ill health will not be discriminated against, and that disclosure of a mental health problem will enable both the employee and employer to assess and provide the right level of support and adjustment.
The hospice is proud to be working with The Disability Confident Scheme, which supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace.
We have therefore joined over 18,000 organisations that have signed up, and who all play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better.
We have Level 1 Status – meaning we are ‘Disability Confident Committed’. In being recognised as such we agree to the Disability Confident commitments and identified actions in making a difference for disabled people.
