How people choose their staff

We know it’s important that the people we support have choice and control of who supports them, what support they receive, and when they receive it.

That’s why we’ve worked together with people supported, their families, staff across mirus and people from other similar organisations to come up with a plan that empowers people to make decisions about the support they receive.

 

Together we think about all aspects of the interview process – from deciding on what type of support they want, right down to who should tell the person they’ve got the job.

There are lots of ways for people to be involved in recruitment, including:

  • making a video that talks about their likes, dislikes and interests
  • writing their own advert
  • joining the interview panel
  • meeting the candidates for a coffee
  • filming a pre-recorded question for candidates to answer
  • helping to write interview questions
  • having a video or phone call with the candidates
  • attending recruitment fairs and open days
  • giving feedback on the answers candidates give
  • telling a successful candidate that they’ve got the job

 

We don’t just follow this process for our support worker roles, we like to have input from people we support in our central roles too! This helps us to ensure that everyone who works at mirus, regardless of which department they’re in, has the right values.
