Client – House of Commons Role – Speakers Counsel
Earlier this year, we had the honor and privilege to work with MR Speaker (John Bercow) on the recruitment of the new Speakers Council.
On this project, we worked exclusively with The House of Commons and Mr Speaker, The RT Hon, John Bercow in the recruitment of the Speakers Counsel to Head up their legal team. Historically they struggled to attract diverse candidates and especially senior female talent to the role purely based on the brand and role preconceptions within the external market.
We worked in partnership with the House of Common by using our unique and authentic approach in the recruitment of this critical role. The result, our final shortlist consisted of 5 strong candidates, 4 females and a gentleman from the LGBT community. Of the 4 women shortlisted, 2 were from a BAME background.
We were able to utilise our vast network of diverse candidates for the role which helped to support the House of Commons in their initiative to be a more inclusive employer. We successfully hired a Senior Exec from a BAME background who recently took up this prestigious post.
