Working at the Bromley by Bow Centre
We are committed to being an anti-racist and truly inclusive place to work. Our employees come from a range of backgrounds with varied skills and experience, and lots of employees are local to the community we support. We are actively seeking to bring people with different lived experiences into the organisation, to create a workplace that is welcoming of all aspects of identity and enables everyone to thrive.
We ensure we have an inclusive approach to recruitment. We will only ask for a qualification when a role requires specialist knowledge (for example some of teaching or advice roles). We also no longer use CV’s to shortlist to remove potential bias from the selection process, instead we use a system called Hireful, shortlisting applications based on responses to pre-set questions relevant to each role. Finally, we ensure we have mixed interview panels and are proactively try to make interviews more accessible for candidates.
You will need to answer around 4 questions on our online application form on Hireful, about your relevant experience relating to the role and why you want to work at the centre. It’s important that you answer these questions fully, showcasing examples of your skills and experience (both professional and personal) as we won’t see your CV until after we have scored all of the answers and shortlisted the applicants to interview.
