In our company there exists diversity in age, gender, and nationality. Such balance is important to maintaining a contented and successful work-culture. It makes for good teamwork and provides the company with a sound foundation for strategic development and change. We enjoy enviable employee retention: 75% of present employees have worked in our company for between five and ten years or more. Employee advancement through internal recruitment is common. We value transferable skills in candidates. However, we do not give priority to applicants based solely on their practical expertise; these skills can be gained within the company. Instead we concentrate on finding ‘the right fit’ for our company and then training the successful candidate. When available, positions are advertised on quality recruitment websites and in the national press (and occasionally the regional press).
