Diversity and Equality
At KIMS Hospital we are committed to creating an environment which will attract, retain and motivate its highly-skilled team.
We’ve created a working environment in which individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit.
We recognise the strength that comes from working with colleagues from a whole host of different backgrounds. Teams that are made up of people with different experiences provide a fresh and innovative perspective.
Diversity is about everyone and we are a business that respects, celebrates and harnesses difference to the benefit of our patients, employees and wider communities.
KIMS is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to the health and wellbeing of all its people.
The company believes that it is the people who make the business successful and everyone should have the opportunity to work in a motivated team, free from discrimination on any grounds.
KIMS is committed to the fair treatment of its staff, potential staff or users of its services, regardless of race, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependants, age, physical/mental disability or background.
Disclosure and Barring Service
As an organisation using the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) to assess applicants’ suitability to fulfil positions of trust, KIMS complies fully with the DBS Code of Practice and undertakes to treat all applications for positions fairly.
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 criminal records. We select all candidates for interview based on their skills, qualifications and experience.
Unless the nature of the position allows KIMS to ask questions about your entire criminal record, we only ask about ‘unspent’ convictions as defined in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
We ensure that all those in KIMS who are involved in the recruitment process have been suitably trained to identify and assess the relevance and circumstances of offences. We also ensure that they have received appropriate guidance and training in the relevant legislation relating to the employment of ex-offenders.
