Work for us

WorldSkills UK has a passionate, dedicated and supportive staff team who work together to improve the quality of apprenticeships and technical education for the benefit of all young people and employers.

Inclusive and diverse working environment

As an employer we are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse working environment and that starts and the beginning of the employee life-cycle at WorldSkills UK which starts at the point at which we open the recruitment process. We strive to recruit, develop and retain a talented workforce that is truly representative of our society as a whole.

Some of the ways in which we do this are:

  • Having a senior sponsor responsible for diversity and inclusion

  • Having a trained Diversity and Inclusion Leads Group

  • Measuring and reporting on our performance on diversity monthly

  • Being clear about what is acceptable behaviour, including training and awareness sessions

  • Using a blind recruitment approach

  • Having a diverse interview panel

  • Measuring diversity across all stages of the recruitment process

  • Making reasonable adjustments throughout the recruitment process

  • Ensuring all applicants who have a disability and meet the minimum criteria are guaranteed an interview

We understand the importance of providing an open and supportive work environment that allows all staff, no matter what their background, to succeed. We have a Wellbeing Team with trained mental health first aiders who offer support and signposting to staff resources, including weekly wellbeing sessions, and help reduce the stigma around mental health issues.

We recognise that having engaged teams is critical to organisational and personal success. There are a number of ways that we engage with staff to ensure their voice is heard, including carrying out an annual diversity perceptions staff survey with action plans, and having a Staff Council with a representative from each team.
