E&Y Blind CV recruitment policy raises workforce diversity by 10% after 12 months

News by Zlata Rodionova, 16 MAR 2017

EY’s decision to remove all academic and education details and ban CVs from its trainee application process has proved successful in diversifying the company’s workforce.

The global professional services firm, one of Britain’s biggest graduate recruiters, in 2015 announced that it was scrapping the requirement for applicants to have a minimum 2:1 degree pass at undergraduate level or a Ucas-point score of 300, which is equivalent to three B grades at A-level. It said that the move was designed to create opportunities for talented individuals “regardless of their background”.
