VERCIDA stands for values, equality, respect, culture, inclusion, diversity and accessibility.
Unlike other job-boards, VERCIDA matches people with the right type of employer. Finding a job within the right organisation means that individuals can feel free to be themselves without reservation. Employers at VERCIDA encompass race, gender, ethnic group, age, personality, cognitive style, tenure, organisational function, education, background and more. VERCIDA allows jobseekers to look at job descriptions and research employers within our site to find their happy workplace.
Here is what a couple of successful jobseekers have to say about us:
Sarah P: “Most job websites give you little to no information about the company’s culture when advertising a job. VERCIDA gave me a lot of information about Atkins and that’s why I selected Atkins as a place to work.”
Francis B: “I'd first of all like to tell you how much this website has helped me in my future. I have recently been successful in my application for the Industrial Placement at Network Rail. Without this website, I would not have been able to find the job opportunity and would not have had the confidence to declare my dyspraxia. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!”
Here is what some of our members have to say about us:
Florence Van Schependom-Brown, Resourcing and Talent Acquisition Manager at DWF: “Inclusion of diversity is an integral part of our identity at DWF. We want to build on the richness of diversity that we have already through effective talent acquisition. Working with VERCIDA is strengthening our employer brand and enabling us to widen our reach.”
Lee Griffiths, Resourcing Brand and Attraction Manager at Nationwide: “Nationwide need to attract a diverse workforce with strong skills and the right levels of experience. Over the past three years, VERCIDA (formerly Diversity Jobs) has worked closely with Nationwide to drive awareness of its brand. In doing so, it has become their most successful channel for hiring staff outside its own careers site.”
Pauline Lewis, Head of Resourcing at Heathrow: “VERCIDA allows us to communicate our diversity need like no other platform allows, it bridges the gap between our resourcing needs and our vision for a diverse and inclusive workforce. Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world and just as our passengers represents the face of the world we believe our colleagues should mirror that too. VERCIDA helps us attract people who might not have seen us as an employer of choice.”
Ellie Harte, Talent Attraction Partner at Atkins: “Atkins is one of the world’s leading design, engineering and project management consultancies. Our work helps enrich the lives of communities across the globe. As we are a truly global company, we recognise that to serve diversity we need to represent diversity. Finding diverse candidates, however, is not always so easy, using VERCIDA we have access to a range of talent we would have never found through traditional means.”
Here is what an Industry Expert at Disability Confident has to say about VERCIDA:
Industry Expert from Disability Confident: “To be considered as a disability confident employer you must attract and recruit people with disabilities, to do this you will need to work with organisations such as vercida.com.”
