We offer a well-defined end-to-end recruitment process which has been instrumental in developing a successful track record of important appointments across the social sector and in mainstream business.
We have great connectivity to pioneering and active change makers and social ‘actors’ across the sector who share employment opportunities and in some cases are looking to use their well-developed skill sets to drive change in a new setting.
We have an acute awareness and understanding of the importance of responsible leadership and the need to galvanise employees into action through effective management and a relatable mandate.
Commitment to diversity & inclusion
Today’s recruitment world endeavours to be as inclusive as possible, especially after the Black Lives Matter protests taking place across the globe which exposed further socioeconomic, racial, ethnic, and gender inequalities, and coincided with the health and economic disparities revealed by the pandemic.
If you are a business focused on delivering social change or, are a company embracing new ways of doing business to contribute to a more sustainable world, then you need a diverse workforce which is resilient, productive and innovative. By encouraging equality of opportunity across all gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and disability characteristics, you bring employees with a new perspective to the decision-making table, presenting new ideas, different approaches, providing solutions and potentially mitigating risk. Diversity in the workplace and in leadership roles is vital if we are to drive the social impact agenda forward.
Embracing diversity in the organisation’s recruitment process:
- Encourage a more inclusive culture and approach, placing positive value on diversity across the organisation
- Reinforce respect for diversity by celebrating cultural and religious backgrounds and different work and life experiences
- Engage Line Managers in training programmes around unconscious bias
- Announce the organisation’s commitment to diversity in Job ads and Job Descriptions
- Remove names and possibly educational establishments from CVs which are presented to Line Managers
All around the world we see instances of corruption, autocratic leadership, narcissistic management, none of which sits well in the social impact arena. Instead, organisations with a social impact or sustainability agenda are in need of leaders with emotional intelligence and prepared to drive change though collaboration, inclusion and discourse, engaging multiple stakeholders, not just the shareholders. Careers4Change is well prepared to identify those leaders of change.
