Transparent Recruitment Processes: A Guide For Employers
Young people with no experience of recruitment processes are at a significant disadvantage compared to more experienced candidates. This factsheet will help you put young people on an equal footing with older, more experienced candidates.
Young people with no experience of recruitment processes are at a significant disadvantage to more experienced candidates who know what to expect at each stage. Vague job descriptions, unclear timescales and multiple stages that have not been explained can be frustrating, cause anxiety and even put young people off applying completely.
By providing clear job descriptions and an outline of what your recruitment process involves, organisations will put young people on an equal footing with older, more experienced candidates.
This factsheet was developed as part of Business in the Community’s Future Proof campaign, backed by the City & Guilds Group to help employers break down the barriers in their recruitment processes to create quality, accessible jobs for all young people.
