The Diversity Jobsite has been created to help employers find the highest quality jobseekers from within the ethnic and minority populations of the UK, and showcase the full range of opportunities that exist for jobseekers within companies that are Equal Opportunity Employers.
Following the introduction of new mandatory guidelines for the Public sector on Diversity Recruitment, there is a need for employers to access qualified candidates who are representative of the diversity of the UK workforce.
The guidelines require the 45,000 Public Sector employers in the UK to demonstrate that they have followed best diversity practice in their recruitment procedures; candidates considered must reflect the full diversity of the UK workforce.
The Diversity Jobsite system now provides a significant enhancement to our job description view and application process made via a mobile device. With the continued aggressive growth of the use of mobile devices to search and apply for jobs, we have introduced a mobile responsive review and apply process.
Promoting Equal Opportunities
Whilst considerable progress has been made in redressing the imbalance between employment levels amongst minority groups, much work remains to be done. The Equality Act legislation and diversity policies have been developed to tackle this ‘employment gap’ and encourage employers to fully develop the skills and potential of minority group employees.
