Diversity and Inclusion

A recruiter that builds careers – and changes lives

At IRC, we love what we do. We love energising our candidates’ careers and helping them on their road to success. We also strive to instigate positive change within our industry and help our clients to lead the way within theirs. 

By working closely with our clients, suppliers and industry partners, we’re opening doors for people often overlooked by the recruitment sector. We’re experts in delivering diversity and inclusion initiatives across many disadvantaged groups and have actively taken the lead within the recruitment industry when it comes to disability inclusion.

As well as being the right thing to do, our proactive approach to diversity and inclusion is driving diversity of thinking and increasing innovation within businesses. A more inclusive working environment that accurately represents the world we live in is quite simply in everyone’s interests.

All of our teams are committed to diversity and flexibility in the workplace. If you require any reasonable adjustments to support you during the application process, please mention this to your IRC consultant. We will do everything we can to help.

Disability Inclusion

We are committed to disability inclusion, and are founding members of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI).

Employability Training

Our reach helps us to engage with, the unemployed, those returning to work after raising a family, or period of prolonged ill health, young people, those with disabilities and ex -offenders. This process strives to engage a candidate pool which may not follow the typical route into employment for a variety of reasons, and provides a base from which to develop the soft skills they may be lacking as well as industry recognised qualifications.
