Diversity and inclusion policy

Active Apparel Recruitment embraces diversity and will seek to promote the benefits of diversity in all of our business activities. We will seek to develop a business culture that reflects that belief. We will seek to widen the media in which we recruit to ensure as diverse an employee and candidate base as possible. We will strive to make sure that our clients meet their own diversity targets.

Active Apparel Recruitment is committed to diversity and will promote diversity for all employees, workers and applicants and shall adhere to such a policy at all times. We will review on an on-going basis all aspects of recruitment to avoid unlawful or undesirable discrimination. Active Apparel Recruitment will treat everyone equally irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, age, disability, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, political beliefs or membership or non-membership of a Trade Union or spent convictions, and places an obligation upon all staff to respect and act in accordance with the policy.

Active Apparel Recruitment shall not discriminate unlawfully when deciding which candidate/temporary worker is submitted for a vacancy or assignment, or in any terms of employment or terms of engagement for temporary workers. Active Apparel Recruitment will ensure that each candidate is assessed only in accordance with the candidate's merits, qualifications and abilities to perform the relevant duties required by the particular vacancy.

Active Apparel Recruitment will not accept instructions from clients that indicate an intention to discriminate unlawfully.

Active Apparel Recruitment uses language that is inclusive, without jargon and written in plain English, and advertises in a wide variety of media to ensure a diverse candidate base. We select candidates fairly and according to person specifications and will provide training to our consultants in legislation, best practice and how to make effective and fair recruitment decisions.
