Who are DiverseJobsMatter?
DiverseJobsMatter [DJM] is an inclusive job board and talent platform dedicated to ensuring that all candidates are unbiasedly considered during hiring processes. We are driven by passion, frustration, and a powerful sense of justice. We aim to close gaps in the recruitment pipeline to remove structural inequalities across multiple industries to ensure that those who are underrepresented can start or progress in their career. DJM is lead by recruitment experts with over 20 years of experience and they are joined by talented executives via the government’s Kickstarter scheme who are informed and enthusiastic about diversity, inclusion, and equality. From the comprehensive sign-up form to the dedicated account management and flexible pricing packages: this blog will walk you through DJM’s unique yet successful strategy as a talent acquisition platform.
Unique and Comprehensive Candidate Sign Up:
The DJM site is accessible and easy to navigate, as a talent platform that is integral to our functioning. Our candidate sign-up form is inclusive and non-generic. As opposed to asking and providing generic questions and answers about protected characteristic under the Equality Act [sexual orientation, religion, race and ethnicity, martial status, [dis]ability]. The categories and options available for selection are numerous, the purpose of this- is so that candidates do not feel like they must put themselves into a box and identify themselves in whatever manner they feel comfortable. We respect that some candidates might be conflicted about disclosing certain details, so there is always the option of ‘prefer not to say.’ This form helps us find hidden talent pools that might not have otherwise been recognised under any standardised recruitment sign-up form.
Applying for vacancies:
The DJM site holds a myriad of vacancies, we like to say that there is something for everyone here. Under the vacancies tab on the job board, candidates can peruse all the jobs available. We hold posts from entry level to director of operations, though DJM is based in London, we have posts available across the country. We hold vacancies from a range of different industries, with such a wide range of vacancies available to candidates, they should be able to find and apply for a job they will really resonate with.
Flexible and well valued packages:
On our website we clearly format and present what prices and services are available in all our packages. Each package breaks down, job posting limits, ATS status, the social media and SEO campaigns level and time with us. We also offer a custom package which can be a mixture of features from the different listed packages on our website. Clients will also have a dedicated account manager who will provide statistical feedback and provide a shortlist of candidates for any vacancies posted. Your job postings are actively managed by out team, and you will get regular service, advice, and feedback from your account manager.
For clients who choose to select a bronze level package or higher, there is also an opportunity for your vacancies to be shared to our partnership networks and their members, ensuring that your vacancies get exposure beyond a simple posting on the job board.
Social media and SEO campaigns:
We do extensive social media campaigning depending on the package you purchase. The basic social media package includes posting your vacancies on our social media channels. A more extensive social package includes a sit down with our diversity officer for a blog and/or podcast interview to promote your vacancies and demonstrate how you are committed to establishing and promoting diversity, equality, and inclusion in the workplace. We are using all the digital tools at our disposal to ensure that your vacancies are getting that key exposure.
We partner with a range of meaningful organisations; they range from NGOs to charities. The partnerships are beneficial for clients as they many be able to provide services and training in their partnership deal for companies to better understand how to implement EDI strategies.
