Another year of being DCR certified

We’re proud to announce we have achieved our Disability Confident Recruiter (DCR) Certification from Australian Network on Disability for the fourth year in a row.

Being a Disability Confident Recruiter is about breaking down barriers in the recruitment process to make recruitment and selection processes more accessible for those living with a disability. This certification also helps us open talent pools to help our clients with their diversity inclusion commitments.

Living our Values

One of the Paxus values is devotion to diversity and inclusion and so we’re honoured to be one of the few recruiters to have achieved this. Our business is made up of people and talents from diverse backgrounds. We promote and embrace diversity and the richness it brings to our interactions.

Building on our Diversity Foundations

In 2017, we first achieved our DCR certification and over the past four years, we have continued to build on it. This year we re-evaluated our job advertisements and processes to further reduce the barrier which included actions such as:

  • Adding contact information on all job advertisements so candidates can get past that first hurdle of applying by reaching out to the Recruitment Consultant.

  • Revisiting our website’s recruitment pages to ensure they meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) and provide people with disability equitable access to our employment information.

  • Ensuring all new staff joining Paxus go through thorough external DCR training.

Diversity Inclusion Commitments

Paxus actively seeks applications from a diverse group of candidates, and are committed to building workplaces that are dynamic, responsive and diverse. We have longstanding associations with Australian Network on Disability (AND), Females in IT and Telecommunications (FITT), and the Association of Professional Staffing Companies in Australia (APSCo).

We believe the qualities which make each individual unique bring a variety of ideas, perspectives and experiences that create the most productive work environments – and we’re committed to helping our clients find the right mix of staff to enhance their workforce.
