DiversityJobs.co.uk the UK’s leading diversity and inclusion recruitment specialist is launching a new direct resourcing function as a result of feedback from its members, many of whom have found it difficult to engage with recruitment suppliers that understand their diversity & inclusion agenda.
The new service has diversity and inclusion as its foundations, ensuring that everyone is treated fairly and that DiversityJobs.co.uk members can be certain that their roles are reaching candidates from the widest talent pools.
Jonathan Graham joins DiversityJobs.co.uk following a period as an independent recruiter with his own company to head up the new resourcing service.
Jonathan has previously worked as a management consulting recruiter and also spent five years as a trainer and learning and development manager for a global engineering consultancy. Jonathan commented:
“I am thrilled to be working with the team at DiversityJobs.co.uk to build the new direct resourcing function. Our members spend a lot of time and effort on their diversity & inclusion strategies, but their message rarely gets through to candidates via the recruitment supply chain.
We put this conversation at the front of the process so that our candidates are fully aware of the company culture and values. This results in higher levels of commitment and the right candidate and employer fit”
Morgan Lobb, CEO and founder of DiversityJobs.co.uk said:
“Jonathan is joining our team at an exciting time in the recruitment sector. More and more employers are realising that they need to invest in recruiting diverse talent and are looking for a specialist provider to help them find the ‘best-fit’ talent for their organisation.
“Resourcing teams are struggling to find talent providers that truly understand the diversity & inclusion agenda; this is in our DNA and is at the heart of our service delivery approach.”
