Given the unprecedented and uncertain situation we are currently in, we would like to reassure all of you who have invested your valuable time in applying for one of our vacancies, attending an interview with us or who have received an offer to join our team, that we are honouring our commitments to you.
We are continuing to interview for our open positions using technology so we can meet each other virtually and we will continue to make job offers to successful interview candidates. Our ICT and HR teams are working hard to support appointed candidates to start with us working remotely and our managers are getting creative about inducting new people into their teams.
Versus Arthritis embraces Flex ways of working and this has enabled us to adapt quickly to the unfolding situation. Our commitment to providing technology and equipment that enables our employees to work well from any location has really helped people make the transition to routinely working from home. Our people have flexible working patterns, which has helped individuals adapt to the challenges of caring for family members who are unwell or no longer in school. And our fantastic teams across the charity are finding new and innovative ways of keeping in touch and supporting each other through these unusual times. There are virtual tea breaks, local lunchtime walks (whilst keeping a safe distance), and sharing photos of our new home working spaces and four-legged work buddies!
We are Versus Arthritis and we will not be beaten.
