Open Hiring Policy Statement

As an equal opportunities employer, we’re committed to ensuring that everybody receives equal treatment regardless of age, gender or gender reassignment, disability, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

Recruitment & Employment

We aim to employ a team that represents the diversity of society, and to provide a safe, working environment that values our employees’ individual identities and cultures. In line with our belief on open hiring, applicants will be considered only on the basis of their ability to do the job. We therefore do not ‘require’ specific experience or qualifications, and give each candidate the opportunity to demonstrate their potential in their own unique way.

Training & Development

We’re committed to providing training and development opportunities for all permanent employees. We support all our team members to develop their full potential, for the mutual benefit of Wholegrain and your personal and professional development. We’ll discuss what you want to achieve in your career and how we can assist you in our regular check-ins.

Disability

If you have a disability, you become disabled while working for us, or have a health issue or impairment that prevents you from working effectively, please tell us about your condition so we can consider any reasonable adjustments or support that we can provide to make your working life easier.

Responsibilities

Wholegrain Directors, Tom and Vineeta, are responsible for determining the Equal Opportunities Policy. Team Administrator, Mohib, is responsible for assessing our company policies, ensuring that they’re free from bias, and that all team members adhere to them.

Should we discover any bias in our policies, we will immediately refine our processes and provide any necessary training.

All Wholegrain employees also have a responsibility to ensure they follow our policies and procedures, and treat their fellow team members with respect.
