#TransparencyScheme

The Government launched its Transparency Pilot Scheme on International Women’s Day 2022 as part of its initiative to level up. The scheme aims to support objectives around Gender Pay Gap by encouraging organisations to promote transparency with salaries when advertising any job roles. Evidence shows that by stating salaries on job adverts, Women can negotiate pay on a fair basis. At CCG our objective is to be Employer of Choice, through our passion and dedication to Diversity, Equality and Inclusion recognising everyone is different together.

Don’t think you meet all the skills and qualifications listed? Studies have shown individuals with protected characteristics, such as women, people of colour or those in Neurodiverse groups (and many more) are less likely to apply for a role if they don’t meet all the requirements on a job advert. Clams Consortium Group strives to lead the way in creating a culture that promotes not only an equal but more importantly, an inclusive workforce that allows all our employees to be their authentic selves. If this role is something you’re excited about, but your experience doesn’t align with every qualification outlined, don’t stress it, we would encourage you to still apply as you may be the just the candidate we are looking for, for this position or another role.

If you require alternative methods of application or screening, you must approach Claims Consortium Group directly to request this, as we're not responsible for the employer's application process.
