All new appointees require background checking. Under the requirements of the Children's Act 2014, new employees that are identified as coming under this act are required to undergo further safety checks as part of the recruitment process.

Some health and disability sector employers may require workers to be vaccinated. This is because workers come into close contact with people likely to get seriously ill if they get COVID-19. Having undertaken a thorough health and safety analysis with regards to Covid-19, we have determined that vaccination is required for our workforce (two primary doses and at least one booster).

Pathways are committed to healthy lifestyles and actively support a smoke-free environment.

We encourage people with experience of mental illness to apply
