‘All work is a deal between what you want out of life and what an employer wants out of you.’
John Lees, How to get a job you love.
“When recruiting for paid staff we have a values-led approach. There’s an online application form, where you would write a profile of yourself outlining your interest in, and suitability for, the role, in line with what’s on the job description. Then we also have a part of the application form where you write about our values. We ask candidates to pick one specific value and explain why that would be applicable to the role they’re applying for.”
Anna Wells, Head of People at The Reader
“I think I was very keen when I was researching a career move – this was about 18 months ago – to find an organisation that had similar values to the one that I had worked in previously.”
Laura Lightfoot, Faculty Director of Operations (Faculty of Science and Engineering), University of Liverpool.
