Making Recruitment Accessible to All

Making Recruitment Accessible to All

Posted on behalf of North East In-House Recruiters Forum

Join us for our first event of 2019, specifically targeted to all In-House Senior Recruiters who direct source on behalf of their own organisation and want to be part of a wider professional network of experienced recruiters from across the North region.

The event is kindly being hosted by Tombola at their new offices in Sunderland, so an opportunity to have look at the offices too.

Organised by recruitment professionals, our group enables the sharing of best practice, resourcing challenges, sector innovation, employer branding, discussing candidate market trends and other specific topics relating to direct sourcing models.

For our next meeting, we will be joined by Martin Robertson from Recite Me ( who will be talking about making recruitment accessible to all.

Digital technology has now become central to the recruitment process, from online job adverts on both websites and social media platforms, to online application forms and skills assessments. Evidence shows inaccessible online and digital communications are preventing disabled jobseekers flourishing in the recruitment process.

There is clearly a need to educate and support recruiters to make the recruitment journey more accessible and allow them to tap into the pool of disabled talent.

We’ll look at digital barriers for disabled jobseekers in recruitment processes and look at ways to make it more accessible.

The 2nd part of the event will be an open recruitment forum, to enable you to Network and share the challenges you are experiencing in your organisations
