Build fair & transparent recruitment processes

What you need to know


Recruitment can be very informal in TV and film. Time pressure and skills shortages can mean jobs aren’t always advertised and therefore block access to wider communities. Putting time and resource into fair recruitment processes and advertising for all positions will help create a more diverse and creative team, which benefits everyone.

Every company should be taking active steps to prevent discrimination and create equal opportunities for under-represented groups and those who face additional barriers in the industry. This not only benefits content, but also helps the industry to better reflect its audiences and take steps towards preventing workplace inequality. There is also a legal obligation to ensure that workplaces are non-discriminatory and this includes recruitment.
