Our Commitment to inclusive recruitment
The IET is an inclusive employer, but that doesn’t start when you walk through the door, it starts now. We want to do all we can to ensure the best talent from a range of different backgrounds and lived experiences can find their home with us. Its how we stay good at what we do.
With this in mind, we continuously educate our hiring managers and support them with the necessary tools to ensure recruitment is inclusive by design. This starts with the language we use in job descriptions and having structured shortlisting and interview stages that ensures each candidate is given the same opportunities to demonstrate their suitability for the role, and as far as reasonably possible, removing any barriers in the process.
We also operate an anonymised CV process that means if your CV shows that you meet the majority of the criteria for a role, the recruitment team will pass you on to the hiring manager for review – but all names and indicators of protected characteristics are removed first. This is to help reduce unconscious bias as early as possible.
We understand that one size doesn’t fit all and want to reduce any barriers applicants might face throughout our recruitment process. If you require your application to be submitted in a way other than CV upload simply let us know - email@example.com.
If you are invited to an interview and you need an adjustment in order to remove any barriers to you participating at your best, simply let us know when we ask this of you during the process.
We want to invite the widest possible pool of talent to consider a role with us, so let us know how we can best support you to be your best.
