Hire

Non-transparent recruitment processes discourage young people from applying for jobs. To successfully recruit the right candidates, businesses must ensure their approach to recruitment is fair and open and their opportunities are attractive and accessible to a diverse range of young candidates. To successfully gauge talent, businesses must learn to see it in attitude and aspiration, not just academic results.

This section will help you:

  1. Make your opportunities attractive and accessible to a diverse range of young talent
  2. Make your recruitment process transparent.
  3. Recognise talent by looking beyond experience and qualifications.
