We are a friendly, flexible organisation and will do everything we can to accommodate the right candidate. That's why we offering this role as full-time or part-time, with core hours from 10 am - 4 pm and the role is home-based with occasional travel (travel expenses paid).

As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are using a 'name-blind' (anonymous) recruitment process to rule out unconscious bias. When applying for the role, we ask all candidates to:

  1. Select a six-digit number at random. This will become your unique ID number (please avoid obvious choices like 123456)

  2. Remove your name, home address and email address from your CV and cover letter - replace them with your six-digit ID on both documents

  3. Ensure that the file name contains your six-digit ID (e.g. CV_916723.pdf and Cover_916723.pdf) and does not contain your name

We will process applications in an anonymised way:

 

  1. When we review all anonymised CVs and cover letters and draw up the shortlist, names and addresses will not be visible (we will identify candidates using the unique six-digit IDs)

  2. When we contact shortlisted candidates to arrange a telephone interview, we will see the names and email addresses for the first time

  3. Once the interviews have been confirmed, we will contact the remaining applicants to update them about the status of their application
