Diversity in Senior Recruitment - "What Great Looks Like"

The Commission hosted an event this week for recruiters and headhunting firms who work with government departments, aimed at increasing understanding of its work and championing diversity in senior recruitment to the Civil Service.

Melanie Dawes, the Civil Service diversity and inclusion champion, and Richard Heaton, the Civil Service race equality champion, joined Commissioners Natalie Campbell and Joe Montgomery along with Joanne Abeyie from Blue Moon Recruitment (an inclusive executive search consultancy) for a lively and informative panel discussion on recruiting and growing diverse talent in the senior levels of the Civil service.

"I’d like to thank all those who came along on Thursday evening. As the regulator chairing almost 200 competitions at senior levels across government each year, we’re keen to share our experience and hear from others about what really good diverse recruitment practice looks like in the Civil Service.
Executive search has a major role in helping departments find and attract talented candidates from a wider range of backgrounds. We want to play our part, working with search firms employed by departments, to help the Civil Service achieve its aim to be the UK’s most inclusive employer, with a workforce that reflects the whole of British Society.”
