Only 6% of young people leaving care go to university.   The bravery and determination they show in beating the odds to get there, probably means they have many of the characteristics a lot of us are looking for as employers; including the resilience and flexibility needed to operate in fast-moving, ever-changing industry sectors.

Contextual recruitment matters – on the journey towards levelling the playing field and equalising opportunity; AND because it introduces different perspectives into our workplaces, i.e. the diversity that will help us become better decision-makers. Makes me think we should all be thinking about how we build it into our entry level strategies as standard.
