Workplace pledge

building a strong workplace by embracing diversity, inclusion, fairness and clarity

A rewarding and supportive workplace makes business and ethical sense. We embrace diversity and treat each other with respect and dignity. This core principle is rooted in our social and recruitment interaction with clients, candidates and suppliers.

Our team
    • People are at the heart of our business and we are committed to continuous professional development by having a structured framework of training and development in place.

    • As a member of the REC, all our consultants are REC (IEC).

    • We aim to thoroughly understand the recruitment, asset finance and leasing markets so we can share our knowledge and capabilities with our clients and candidates.

Our clients and candidates
    • We work with our candidates to help them maximise their career potential and our clients to create business value through recruiting the right staff.

    • We provide a socially valuable service by helping our customers succeed in their markets.

    • This helps us forge stronger working relationships with them and fosters continued success.

Our suppliers
    • The size of our business means that we sometimes lack the clout to manage our supplier base as effectively as we would like, but we do have a right of choice which we often exercise.

    • We will go the extra mile to ensure our suppliers are running their businesses ethically and sustainably.

Our community
    • We offer free workshops for local students and businesses on topics such as recruitment tips, CV writing skills and interview help.

Diversity
    • We are committed to diversity; we respect all employees, suppliers, clients and candidates and adhere to our diversity policy at all times.
      For us diversity means much more than legal compliance:

    • As an employer, we are committed to creating a diverse and supportive environment where all employees, irrespective of ethnic origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality or disability can develop their skills, advance their careers and maximise their potential.

    • We do this by ensuring we do not discriminate unlawfully when employing or developing our staff.

    • Our culture encourages individuals to come together with their ideas and opinions to form a stronger, more knowledgeable team.

    • Diversity is a big part of that strength; the greater the variety of backgrounds within a team, the greater the opportunities its members have to learn from and develop with each other.

    • This diversity also brings together creative and innovative ideas to provide to our clients and candidates.

    • To this end, we look to recruit and develop a diverse workforce to help shape the growth of the business in the future.

    • As a recruitment consultancy, we work closely with clients to achieve their diversity and equal opportunity objectives and to ensure compliance with current legislation.

    • We do this by ensuring we do not discriminate unlawfully when deciding which candidates to submit for a vacancy.

    • We ensure that each candidate is assessed only in accordance with their merits, qualifications and abilities to perform relevant duties required by the particular vacancy.

    • We respond to client diversity reporting requests by providing diversity statistics relating to their employees sourced through New Leaf Search.

Equal opportunity
    • We whole-heartedly support the principle of equal opportunities in employment and opposes all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of ethnic origin, nationality, gender, disability, age, religious belief, sexual orientation or marital status.

    • We believe that it is in the company's best interests and of all those who work in it to attract, retain and develop a diverse pool of talent.

    • It is essential to the company's productivity and profitability to enable employees of all backgrounds to reach their full potential by encouraging a working environment that is inclusive to all.

    • To this end and within the framework of the law we are committed, wherever practical, to achieving and maintaining a team which broadly reflects the local community in which we operate.

    • Every possible step will be taken to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on recruitment, selection, training, promotion and career management are based solely on objective and job-related criteria.
