Our culture and values

Our People and Culture

Our strength is in bringing together people with a diversity of thought, experience, and backgrounds, who work together as an effective team. Who we are changes over time, but our culture remains open, positive, and collaborative.

We believe it’s important to be empathetic and respectful in our work with colleagues, clients, partners, and the public. Our staff are engaged in and passionate about their communities, trusted and knowledgeable, and take the time to listen to and consider the perspectives of others.

The environment we work in is warm and welcoming. We have regular (optional!) social activities, and celebrate our successes together.

Where you'll work

 

Our main office space is in central Bristol, just on the corner of Queen Square. We have easy access to the harbourside and to the city centre. We’re well served by buses, fifteen minutes’ walk from Temple Meads station, and there are Tier parking spaces and cycle racks just outside the building.

Our staff work flexibly across the city. We have a regular presence at Knowle West Health Park, Easton Community Centre, and the Greenway Centre, and plenty of opportunities for outreach work in other local community venues.

Finally, our flexible and hybrid working policies mean that staff are able to work from the comfort of their own homes when they need to.

Equality, diversity and inclusion policy

Recruitment Policy

Voscur is an Equal Opportunities employer, and we actively encourage applications from all backgrounds and communities.

Equity and diversity are very important to our diverse VCSE sector and population. We are keen to increase the diversity of our team, and welcome applications from people whose communities are currently under-represented – particularly Black, Asian, and other Ethnic communities, people of faith, and those that have experienced poverty. As part of our commitment to inclusion, all candidates from those communities who meet the essential criteria will be invited to interview.

We will make reasonable adjustments to the interview process if you need something different or additional as part of the process – for example, if you have a disability, long-term health condition, or caring responsibilities. Please do let us know in the application form.
