JWT London to use ‘blind recruitment’ for entry-level hiresMonday 14 November 2016
J Walter Thompson London has pledged to use a "blind recruitment" approach in its next round of hiring at entry level as the WPP agency seeks to improve its diversity.
The recruitment scheme, called JWT Pioneers, has up until now sought graduates, but the agency is now seeking applicants from a wider range of backgrounds.
Applicants will be still be asked to submit a CV, but the agency said this will no longer be looked at until the candidates are whittled down to a much later stage. Instead, applicants will now be asked to answer six questions which will be used to assess them for interview selection. JWT said submitting a CV limits diversity of opportunity to enter the advertising industry.
