OSTC has long been committed to creating a fair and diverse working environment. Today we’re delighted to announce that we’re the proud owners of the Level 1 ‘Disability Confident Committed’ certificate, reflecting our dedication to proactively attracting disabled talent through the @Evenbreak job board. Disability Confident is a government funded scheme that provides employers with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to attract, recruit, retain and develop disabled people in the workplace. They provide tools, guidance and advice to help companies recruit and retain from the widest possible pool of talent. This qualification is the first rung of the accreditation’s three levels of commitment ladder. And while there is still more progress to make, this is a huge step towards OSTC’s goal of eliminating structural barriers that hinder employees who may have a disability, or care for someone who has, from being able to effectively carry out their job. You can discover all the current OSTC job opportunities suitable for disabled candidates on our Evenbreak profile.

OSTC has taken another big step forward this week as CEO, Lee Hodgkinson, was appointed to the Advisory Board of the City of London Corporation’s new taskforce to improve socio-economic diversity at senior levels within UK financial and professional services. Eliminating the divide is right at the top of OSTC’s diversity agenda. Having already become a signatory to the Women in Finance Charter at the beginning of 2021, this new appointment takes our organisation even closer to helping determine another vital change for the better and creating even more of a positive impact. Commissioned by The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and HM Treasury, the new Advisory Board is made of a team of hugely enthusiastic individuals who will have oversight across all three workstreams and help to inform the taskforce’s final conclusions. You can find out more about the taskforce’s vision and who else will be joining Lee on the Advisory Board here:
