RS Components are proud members of The Valuable 500, bringing together 300 global organisations who have joined and pledged to put disability on their business leadership agenda following the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in January 2019.
Applying to us:
As an equal opportunities’ employer, we are committed to accessibility and disability inclusion and treat all job applicants without prejudice.
When applying and interviewing with us, we greatly encourage anyone to discuss what needs, requirements and support are needed to effectively carry out the role. For example, accessibility requirements, flexible / home working, visual adaptions to your computer screen or changes in tools you may prefer to use.
We will do everything in our power to support you with your application. If you need further support during this process, please inform your recruiter that adjustments are required.
Our disability response to Covid 19
In December 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) revealed that over one billion people live with a disability globally, which impacts 15% of the world's population, or 1 in 7 of us.
Further insights showed that people with disability had been disproportionately affected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout the pandemic, we are proud to have continued recruiting for global roles, however, we also acknowledged that individuals might need greater levels of support during this time.
For the interview process, we greatly encourage anyone to let us know if adjustments are needed to empower you to bring your best self to the interview.
We also have an Employee Resource Group (ERG) to support our people who identify with a disability (visible and non-visible), cares for someone with a disability or wants to be an ally. Additionally, accessibility support is also provided to anyone who indicates that this is required.
Our internal committee, LifeWorks, is available to all our people and is dedicated to supporting and being present to discussions around mental-ill health, physical disabilities and finance.
We are also members of the Business Disability Forum and are a Disability Confident Employer.
Jessica Chu, Group Head of Diversity and Inclusion, said:
"Over the past months during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have absolutely proven that people do not have to travel and be in an office to work but can successfully do it from home. This opens a whole new window for us on looking to employ those who may be house-bound, due to their disabilities. Being able to attract and employ talent from as wide a pool as possible ensures creativity and diversity, cornerstones of making amazing happen and of the successful and inspirational organisation we want to become."
