By achieving Investors in People (IiP) Gold standard, we are delighted to have enhanced our reputation, as an employer of distinction. The award is a demonstration of how we have invested in our staff over the last three years to be recognised as an employer of choice. Only 3.2% of the organisations who receive the IiP accreditation are awarded the Gold Standard and Radian has now joined an elite group of just 600 organisations in the UK that have reached that level.

Our success in achieving this award highlights one of our top priorities alongside our successful Employee Engagement Programme.

Our values

Our values - choice, opportunity, trust

Choice: Working to be chosen on merit for everything we do

Opportunity: Creating it, seizing it, offering it

Trust: Doing what we say; saying what we do


The Radian Way

This is a framework of five key behaviours that Radian staff work to – it ensures consistent and fair behaviour from everyone and lets us all know what is expected of us and others. It also helps us identify development needs, assess our performance and monitor how we demonstrate our values to others.

The five behaviours are...

  1. Change: Anticipate, plan and cope effectively with business change and apply creative thinking to continually improve business processes, systems or services.
  2. Communicate: Work to give and receive verbal and non-verbal information to help build rapport, gain confidence and get commitment.
  3. Engage: Engage yourself and others to take ownership of personal performance and development.
  4. Service: Deliver excellent customer service in order to meet the identified needs of both internal and external customers.
  5. Team: Work with people in a cooperative and empowering way that recognises their strengths and maximises both individual and team performance.

Improving LGB services

Logo of Stonewall Diversity ChampionsRadian has signed up to Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme. This means we will be working with Stonewall, a leading lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) rights charity, to ensure the services we provide for our residents are accessible and fair. It will also help Radian to perform as an employer of choice for LGB people.

 What EST Offers

Radian is committed to helping our residents flourish. It is easy to secure training, a job or even an interview right now, so Radian has set up EST - Employment, Support and Training, to help give you the best chance of success. If you are looking to get into employment, let us give you a guiding hand.

Employer's ToolkitThe EST team have created a booklet called the 'Employer's Toolkit: A Guide to Work Placements and Apprenticeships' which details our approach to engaging trainees on work placements.

Please also take a look at the NEW Employability Toolkit, which contains lots of hints, tips and information on how to get ahead in today's job market.                                                                                                                        



EST is open to all Radian residents and is completely free of charge so whether you need help finding work, training, an apprenticeship or voluntary opportunity, EST can help you get ahead of the rest!

EST also sources and supports work experience placements for residents both internal and external to Radian. Radian has partnered prime work programme provider A4e and sub-prime Wheatsheaf Trust, and as a result, has set up a number of work programme placements within the group. These placements are for long-term unemployed people and last for a six month period.

EST Team 2016

Once involved in the project you may find you would benefit from the aid of a volunteer; someone signposted to offer 1:1 support in pursuit of making positive changes. EST can match you with a local volunteer who can support you as much or as little as necessary. We treat everyone individually so that the service fully benefits YOU and your personal goals.

If you want to know more and get involved, please call our friendly team on FREE phone 0800 422 0570 or email and we will guide you through.
