Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

At ResourceBank, we are committed to diversity and equality by promoting and sustaining an open, inclusive, and supportive working mindset.

At ResourceBank, we are committed to diversity and equality by promoting and sustaining an open, inclusive, and supportive working mindset. Our values of being friendly, positive, different, successful and fair help to create a culture where our employees feel a sense of belonging and can be their authentic self. The diversity of our team enriches our client relationships and supports the delivery of an excellent candidate experience.

We are committed to taking an inclusive approach when attracting candidates to our own or our clients’ organisations. By taking an inclusive approach, we are more likely to attract a diverse pool of talent and experience for our clients. We do this by reaching out to a wide and varied audience and advertise roles in a manner that encourages candidates from all backgrounds to apply with confidence.

We have a fair skills assessment and competency-based approach to candidate selection to eliminate unconscious bias. We are committed to providing an inclusive recruitment service where talented people can advance their careers regardless of background, gender, age, ethnic origin, religion or political belief, sexual orientation or disability.

Whilst Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) have been an important part of ResourceBank for some time, we are now at the point in our journey where we want to state our commitment towards ED&I.
ED&I is heavily embedded within our company values and we are committed to ensuring our values “live” amongst our people and that they continue to evolve as we evolve as a business.
We aim to lead the way, using our expertise and knowledge to continually improve the working lives of our employees whilst also supporting our clients to achieve the same goal.
We are creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our employees, candidates, and clients. It’s an ongoing journey which we will continue to build upon and we will always be striving to do more.
Disability Confident Committed
We are committed to being an inclusive organisation and to ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible for all. We support existing colleagues who acquire a disability or long term health condition, enabling them to stay in work.  We ensure that we communicate and promote our vacancies for us and on behalf of client’s to candidates with disabilities, anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments.  We want to make a difference for disabled people to have a fulfilling career.
