Public Sector Appointments
The Diversity Leaders team has the skills and experience to maximise your opportunities, helping you find the public sector role you want and ensuring you make the most of it. Many public sector appointments are made through informal or ‘word-of-mouth’ recruitment. Unfortunately, this can lead to the perpetuation of certain biases and the possible exclusion of diverse or minority applicants.
The ethos of Diversity Leaders is rooted in equal opportunity and we have wide experience in helping candidates overcome potential hurdles that may stand in their way when seeking public sector appointments.
If you have the talent and motivation to take on a public sector role, then contact us for a confidential discussion about how Diversity Leaders can help you reach your goals.
Equally, if you are a member of a public sector board looking to recruit, we can help you find the ideal candidate. We will ensure you meet expectations of diversity in your appointments and that you always employ the most talented people. We are in contact with a diverse and highly skilled range of people, all of whom have worked at senior level in their field.
Public Sector Boards
The responsibilities of a public sector board are very different from the private sector. There is no accountability to shareholders and no profit imperatives; instead boards have varying objectives and consequently the input of an experienced management consultancy is all the more crucial. Boards can experience conflict from many sources:
- Responding to ministerial policies
- Managing and measuring the organisation’s performance
- The difference in representation brought by each member of the board
We are unique in that we have the knowledge and insight to advise on a wide variety of issues, helping to reconcile the typical conflicts that affect the performance of public sector boards.
The Equality Act 2010 is an area of special interest for us. We have the complex legal and technical knowledge – and the experience – to help you with any questions or issues you have about the Act and and its implementation. It is essential that all public and third sector organisations (including at board level) comply with the provisions of the Act in all their policies, procedures and working practices. Diversity Leaders can review your specific situation and put into action any required changes.
After an independent audit of how effectively you implement good practice in governance, we will ensure your training programmes, policies and procedures are developed appropriately and efficiently – not just making you legally compliant but also helping you secure wider benefits for your organisation and its stakeholders.
We can make diversity work for you. Find out how by contacting us for a confidential discussion of what we can achieve together.
Private Sector Diversity Management
Successful diversity management is a critical issue for all organisations. Developing a cohesive and transparent approach to diversity is more than simply presenting an acceptable public face to a society that demands it; it is maximising the productivity of your workforce and raising the boundaries of profit and expansion.
In recent years evidence has shown that companies addressing demographic factors in their recruitment, marketing and product development have maintained or improved their commercial strength. In these challenging commercial times it is more important than ever for companies to exploit every opportunity to increase efficiency, productivity and profit.
Strength from Diversity
Diversity Leaders offers companies the opportunity to turn the problems around diversity that can undermine business into opportunities for adding value and increasing competitiveness. We offer specifically tailored services that focus on your company’s unique position, are within your financial plans and can make a real difference to your bottom line. We work with you to develop policies and strategies that address the individual needs of your company, employees and customers, bringing them together into a coherent approach that both embraces all aspects of diversity in the workplace and boosts your profits.
Whether you work within a mass or niche market, optimising your human resources and sales opportunities is critical if your company is to make the most of its investments. Most businesses have a wealth of under-utilised potential because of a failure to tackle the issues of diversity. At Diversity Leaders we can help you turn that weakness into a strength.
