The Ad Capita Executive Search code of
ethics for Candidates
All data about candidates and their candidacy will be kept strictly
Contacts will always be made with maximum discretion to protect
candidate confidentiality. Present employers will never be contacted
by Ad Capita or informed about a candidate contact unless explicitly
agreed with candidates. Candidates will only be identified to clients
on reaching shortlist stage, unless explicitly agreed with the candidate
for earlier disclosure. We will always ask Candidates permission
to keep their details for possible future missions.
Transparency and respect
Ad Capita believes in process transparency. We always explain to
candidates the purpose and objectives of each stage of the selection
process. Wherever possible we will share any test results with candidates
to allow them to comment. Ad Capita will make every endeavour to
ensure that all candidates interviewed by us are kept informed of
progress as quickly as possible, including being informed of exclusion
from the process.
Candidates will always be treated with respect
and cordiality. We treat all people equally, irrespective of gender,
nationality, race, age or creed.
We take special care in trying to keep strictly
to interview and meeting times and endeavour never to make any candidate
wait for more than 15 minutes later than the agreed time.
Ad Capita will support chosen candidates
for up to twelve months after appointment with advice, coaching and
mentoring, as appropriate, to ensure full and mutually satisfactory
integration into the new position.
We believe that candidate support is an important role in the selection
process. While our primary responsibility is to our client, we will
also ensure that candidates are advised and supported throughout
selection, including at the contract negotiation stage. We will
do everything possible to ensure that candidates are fairly treated
by our clients.
