Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

We proudly support .

Welcome to NC Associates, where we champion Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. We are passionate about creating an inclusive culture that acknowledges the uniqueness of every individual, and fosters opportunity for all.

At NC Associates, we strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone in our community. We are committed to providing equal access to opportunities regardless of gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation or disability.

We believe that diversity of thought is essential for innovation and success, which is why we work hard to ensure equity and inclusion are at the core of everything we do. We are dedicated to building an inclusive workplace where everyone has a voice, and where their unique perspectives and talents can be celebrated.

We invite you to join us in our mission to promote ED&I and create an environment where everyone feels supported and valued. If you have any questions or would like more information about our commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, please feel free to contact us.

Access to opportunity for all

We are ethical and inclusive recruiters who aim to attract, retain and promote diverse talent for the benefit of all our candidates and clients.

Inclusive recruitment

We aim to provide a great client and candidate experience for everyone we work with. Ultimately, our aim is to ensure we place the right person for the right job at the right company. By cultivating a diverse, balanced, and inclusive recruitment process we will truly embrace different abilities, genders, ethnicities, skills and people of all identities. 

Advertise inclusively

We can create inclusive job adverts to ensure we aren't putting up any barriers between a great job and diverse candidates. We write adverts in the right way and put them in the right places so they are accessible for everyone. 

Inclusive interviewing

We make sure this process is fair and inclusive as possible. By using techniques such as a standardised process with competency-based questions, we compare candidates using the same criteria to ensure it's fair for all.

Anonymous CVs

More and more companies are requesting blind CVs which remove personal identifiers so that the essence of a candidate's capabilities are based on just that instead of anything that could identify their personal characteristics.  

Overcoming unconscious bias

Stereotypes about certain groups or individuals can form outside our own conscious awareness which can sometimes impact the recruitment process. Our consultants have been trained in overcoming these biases and take steps to overcome this throughout the process.

Internal training

Our team have all had internal training on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and are dedicated to cultivating a company where ED&I is recognised, valued and celebrated. 

Striving for best practice

It is our goal to create an inclusive recruitment process and company where everyone is safe and empowered to truly be themselves and to provide the right service and advice to ensure we strive for best practice around ED&I.
