RECRUITMENT guidelines

We have created a set of recruitment guidelines in consultation with a number of thought leaders and influencers both male and female from the HR, recruitment and technology sectors. These guidelines are designed to give you some practical suggestions around recruitment and selection to help improve your representation of females in technology.

JOB DESCRIPTIONS

Women respond to job descriptions differently to men. Create descriptions that will attract and increase your female candidate pipeline.

ADVERTISING STRATEGY

Casting the widest net and thinking about broadening your advertising strategy and reach is likely to deliver a much greater diversity of candidates.

RECRUITMENT AGENCIES

Ensure your agency is on board with your commitment to shortlisting diverse candidates wherever possible in the selection process.

MEASURING SUCCESS

Measuring and reporting your success in recruiting for diversity is essential to identify areas of improvement.

SELECTION PROCESS

Assess how your selection process appears from a female candidate perspective.

DE-BIASING

Reducing the likelihood of unconscious bias in the selection process will limit flawed decision making.
