Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, and Positive Action in our recruitment process

Buttle UK is passionate about promoting equity, valuing diversity, and working inclusively. We want applicants from a broad range of diverse backgrounds with a cross section of skills, experiences and narratives to extend and develop how we work.

We recognise that you are even more likely to have faced barriers, in our sectors and others, if one or more of the following represent you:

  • You are from the global majority
  • You have lived experience in relation to the issues that Buttle UK seeks to tackle
  • You don’t have socio-economic privilege, and/or you identify as working class
  • You identify as D/deaf or disabled or both

We warmly welcome your application.

Positive Action: first interview stage

We have specific positive action in place for our first interview stage. If you meet the above criteria, you can choose whether you would like us to apply positive action when reviewing your application – you just need to say you would like us to apply Positive Action when completing the application form. If you do this, it means that, if you have clearly shown in your application that you meet our minimum criteria, you will be invited for a first interview.

We do not ask you to disclose any further details in your application, and we treat all positive action answers confidentially and sensitively.

Wherever possible, we are open to receiving applications from those wishing to work on a part time / job share basis and will make it clear in specific job adverts where this is feasible. Please make it clear in your application if you would like to apply on a part time / job share basis.

Interviews are usually online. To support applicants through the recruitment process, we commit to:

  • Paying for childcare for the hours in and around the interview process
  • Supporting any accessibility needs in the application and interview process
  • If interviews are face to face we will cover the cost of reasonable expenses for you to attend the interview

Equity Diversity & Inclusion: monitoring

We want to meet the aims and commitments set out in our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion strategy and policy. This includes not discriminating under the Equality Act 2010 and building an accurate picture of the make-up of our workforce, and those who apply to work at Buttle UK. We need your help to collate this information by completing an anonymous EDI monitoring form, which cannot be traced back to an individual. The monitoring form link is provided as part of the application process. The information given by candidates will be solely used for the purpose of reviewing and improving the recruitment process.

We usually recruit interns for specific and time limited projects. Job Descriptions will be required and interns will enjoy the same terms and conditions as other members of staff.

Past Buttle UK grant recipients whom we have funded through our School Fees Programme or through the Enhanced Packages Programme and who are over 18 are encouraged to contact us if they are looking for internship opportunities.

Work Experience

We are keen to offer work experience placements to 15-18 year old’s whom we have funded through our School Fees Programme or through the Enhanced Packages Programme. These placements will take place during the summer.

Due to the size of Buttle UK, we regret that we can only accommodate one or two students a year. If you are interested in such an opportunity please contact us as far in advance as possible.
