CODE OF PRACTICE
Secure welcomes diversity amongst its employees and seeks to ensure that all candidates for employment are treated fairly, and that selection is based solely on the individual’s abilities and qualifications. The recruitment process must result in the selection of the most suitable person for the job only. We are committed to the principle of equality of opportunity, the company will adhere to the following procedure for recruiting and selecting individuals for all positions:
The selection process will be carried out consistently for all jobs at all levels. Selection criteria for all positions will be clearly defined and reflected in the further particulars sent to applicants which will also include details of the company’s commitment to equality of opportunity. Job qualifications or requirements which would have the effect of inhibiting applications from members of particular groups, such as those of one sex, persons of a particular religion, marital status or sexual orientation, persons of a particular racial group, persons within a certain age bracket or those with a disability, will not be demanded or imposed except where they are justifiable in terms of the job to be done.
The selection process will be carried out consistently for all jobs at all levels. All those handling applications and conducting interviews must be aware of the national and state principles which cover equal employment opportunities and anti-discrimination. The selection of new employees will be based on job requirements and the individual’s suitability and ability to do the job and information sought from candidates will relate only to the qualifications for or requirements of the job.
The staff responsible for shortlisting, interviewing and making or recommending an appointment will be clearly informed of the selection criteria and the need for consistency. Wherever possible, at least two people will interview applicants and all questions will relate to the selection criteria. No questions will be based on age, sex, race assumptions about roles in the home and the family or the assumed suitability of different ethnic groups for the post in question..
