Staff Recruitment

At ADA we strive to ensure we have the best people in our team with a wide range of skills, experience and knowledge to deliver high-quality services in local communities.

We embrace diversity and strive to ensure that no one is disadvantaged in terms of their ability to seek employment with the organisation on the basis of age, ability (or disability), gender, social class, ethnic origin, religion, marital status or sexual orientation. We welcome applications from people who have recovered from alcohol and drug issues.

We believe that by operating in this way, we are best able to address the diverse needs of local people.

Professional development

We recognise that the staff team are our most important resource and therefore invest in a rigorous recruitment procedure. We have a structured induction programme with regular ongoing support and training.

All frontline staff receive formal supervision on a monthly basis with access to supervisors outwith this time for ongoing support and supervision. In addition, we have a system in place to ensure training needs are identified and addressed in order to ensure we are maximising the potential of all staff employed at ADA. Regular in-house practice sessions are held to cover team training issues and external training is provided as appropriate.

Staff are also actively consulted on service developments through a range of in-house service team meetings and communications.

By investing heavily in recruitment, supervision, training and consultation we hope to get the best out of everyone in the ADA team, enabling ADA to deliver high-quality services that make a real difference to people’s lives. We are also a Living Wage Accredited Employer.
