We provide our staff with extensive Continuous Professional Development opportunities, so they are confident in their ability to support our customers into long-lasting employment.

If you are target-driven and have the determination and passion to make a difference to our customer’s lives on a day to day basis, then we would like to hear from you.

Diversity, Inclusion and equal opportunities

Kennedy Scott is committed to providing equal opportunities in employment and we have an inclusive working environment.

We embrace diversity and strive to recruit a work force that reflects the diverse client base that we work with. We accept and encourage applications from all, and do not discriminate against any protected characteristics.

Kennedy Scott is a Disability Confident Employer and is aiming for Level 3, ‘Leader’, status in the near future.

Disability Confident is the DWP scheme for employers that replaced the old ‘Two Ticks’ standard and is designed to help businesses recruit and retain disabled people and those with long-term health conditions. There are three levels: ‘Committed’, ‘Employer’ and ‘Leader’.

Being a Disability Confident Employer involves actively looking to attract and recruit disabled people, providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process and demonstrating a flexible approach to the assessment of applicants; once staff are recruited, a Disability Confident Employer supports employees to manage their disabilities, ensures there are no barriers to the development and progression of disabled staff and provides training to all employees as part of creating a culture of being Disability Confident. As a Leader, Kennedy Scott will be promoting the scheme and sharing best practice throughout our supply chain, partner organisations and business networks.

As well as ensuring all job applicants have a fair chance of succeeding and that Kennedy Scott is able to select from the widest pool of talent possible, committing to Disability Confident ensures we are contributing to reducing the UK’s disability employment gap by meeting or exceeding the standard’s criteria, working closely with other Disability Confident organisations, whilst informing our participants of the scheme and increasing their job opportunities.

Application, recruitment and selection process

Kennedy Scott conducts a two stage interview process, and applicants are interviewed by the Recruitment Team and a Business Manager/Area Manager.

Interviews are competency based and we review candidates according to their skills and abilities.

Guaranteed Interview Scheme

We offer disabled applicants the option of requesting their application is considered under the terms of our Guaranteed Interview Scheme (GIS). To be invited to interview/assessment under this scheme, your application must meet the minimum criteria for the role.

Pre-employment checks

Successful applicants will be asked to complete an equality and diversity analysis form, to help Kennedy Scott monitor how effective our work is in this area. An Enhanced Disclosure will need to be completed and evidence for suitable references will need to be provided.

Kennedy Scott will also require proof of the right to work in the UK and the relevant training and educational certificates. Any offer of employment will be conditional to all pre employment checks being satisfactory to the company.
