As a staffing and IT recruitment agency, Certes has a 30 year successful track record delivering UK wide IT and comms staff, as well as staffing services and recruitment support.

Our Diversity Commitment

Certes encourages diversity and seeks to promote the benefits of diversity across all areas of our business.  We will seek to develop a business culture that respects and values each others' differences, that promotes dignity, equality and diversity, and that encourages individuals to develop and maximise their true potential.  We will seek to utilise all available and suitable media in order to attract as diverse a pool of talent as possible. 

Certes aims to remove any barriers, bias or discrimination that prevent individuals or groups from realising their potential and contributing fully to our organisation's performance and to develop an organisational culture that positively values diversity.

Certes are committed to, wherever practical, achieving and maintaining a workforce that broadly reflects the local community in which we operate, and supporting the local and wider community by showing respect for their values.

Certes makes a commitment to treat everyone equally irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, age, disability, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, political beliefs or membership or non-membership of a Trade Union or previous criminal convictions, and places an obligation on our staff to act with respect, and without prejudice, in accordance with this policy.

Our aim is to recruit, retain and develop the best people for the job based solely on their abilities, merit and capacity to fulfil their proposed or incumbent role as we recognise that talent and potential are distributed across the population and it is in the best interests of Certes to encourage diversity in order to add value to its business.

The Human Resources Manager has general responsibility to ensure that all relevant business processes are designed to encourage equality and diversity and Certes will review on an on-going basis all aspects of recruitment, training, performance expectations, career development and promotion processes to avoid unlawful or undesirable discrimination.  Certes have an Equality Programme and Action Plan detailing how it will deliver this policy and challenge discrimination in other policies.

Certes Computing has signed up to the European Commission's Code of Best Practices for Women in ICT. The best practices cover the entire career cycle from getting school children interested in working in technology, to ensuring that the technology sector attracts women returners.

Certes Computing encourages others to sign up to the code, to commit not only to attracting young women to the sector but also to make sure that once in, women remain and have an interesting and rewarding career.
