Testimonial – Parliamentary Digital Service

Equal Approach conducted an Inclusive Recruitment Audit for Parliamentary Digital Service.

“Parliamentary Digital Service (PDS) engaged Equal Approach to conduct an inclusive recruitment audit in order to interrogate our recruitment processes, with a focus on increased inclusivity and identifying barriers for diverse talent.

Equal Approach undertook a range of activities in order to thoroughly assess our processes and positioning from both an internal and external perspective. The audit included: observing, documenting and inspecting PDS’ and our external recruitment supplier’s recruitment processes; reviewing job adverts and information available in the public domain; conducting leadership interviews and much more.

Equal Approach produced a detailed report outlining their findings, subsequent recommendations, and the next steps for PDS to take on our journey to recruiting more inclusively, with a number of quick wins outlined to support us to achieve immediate impact.

Following the inclusive recruitment audit Equal Approach conducted, we have and are continuing to implement a number of their recommendations and have seen much progress in a relatively short space of time.

I would highly recommend Equal Approach’s services to organisations looking to understand the barriers within their recruitment processes and make them more inclusive.”
