Leicestershire Cares is the latest organisation to be accredited by young people. The charity is currently supporting our Gen @ Work programme and has started a project to review their recruitment processes.
To help them with their efforts to recruit, our peer panel accredited their careers website against young people’s perceptions and expectations for applying for jobs online to give the organisation valuable insights to make vacancies attractive and accessible.
As part of the Access Generation Accreditation, our peer panel assesses how accessible and supportive an employer is for future generations.
The assessment looks at both the attraction and recruitment processes that an organisation uses online.
The scoring is based on young people’s perceptions and expectations of applying for jobs online and choosing an employer based on their criteria.
Our peer panel produced a report and presented the results of the assessment to the team at Leicestershire Cares.
Charlotte Robey-Turner, head of children and young people at Leicestershire Cares said: “We are delighted to have been accredited by Access Generation. The process was simple, informative and very useful to help us reflect on our recruitment practices and ensure we are attracting the next generation of talent to our workforce.
We now have a clear plan to get us to full accreditation and look forward to working with the Access Generation team to make that happen as soon as possible.”
