We're an inclusive place to work

At SDS we are ambitious about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. If you've got the right skills for the job, we want to hear from you. We encourage applications from the right candidates regardless of *age, disability, race, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief.

* In order to support the government’s initiative on youth employment, certain young talent recruitment programmes require candidates to be aged 24 or younger. However, SDS will be flexible on age criteria for applicants who identify as care experienced or disabled; in which case candidates must be 29 or younger.


During this time as we recover from the impact of the Coronavirus, a percentage of our staff continue to work from home. The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, their families and our candidates is still of primary importance. We will continue to hold video interviews for the time being rather than face to face. We appreciate that most candidates will interview from home and that there may be other distractions in the background. We ensure you that the interview panel will appreciate the temporary constraints we continue to face, and this should not deter you from applying.
