Reviewing Recruitment

Reviewing Recruitment

In this session, we will discuss the range of issues that arise in any recruitment exercise. With increasing emphasis on the diversity agenda, we will look at the discrimination risks arising from unconscious bias and positive discrimination that can arise in selection decisions. Once a preferred candidate has been identified, we’ll look at the issues that can arise with conditional offers and when you can lawfully carry out DBS checks as part of vetting. Finally we’ll look at the impact of the GPDR regime across the recruitment process and after it has been completed.

We are grateful to Wythenshawe Community Housing Group for agreeing to host.

Topic Covered

  • Discrimination risks and where they arise
  • Positive action
  • Vetting
