Youngsters call on employers to clarify online recruitment process


A young person panel has launched a campaign to highlight the top concerns when applying for jobs online and is calling on employers to change the way they attract and recruit. The peer panel for Access


Generation CIC has launched #AccessYourTruePotential after assessing 600 employer websites and their job application processes.


‘We hope this campaign will have a big impact on future generations trying to get access to work.’


Charlotte Boyd, a peer panel


member for Access Generation, said: “I was shocked at how many employers do not take the time to write specific job descriptions, which leaves candidates left in the dark about the role they are applying for. If I could ask employers to do one thing, it would be to provide the basic information around the timings, the job description and process of applying.” The campaign and artwork,

Legal team back media firm buyout


The corporate team in the East Midlands office of law firm Shakespeare Martineau has supported Threadneedle Media, a new London-based media company, with a management buyout of both Square Mile and HEDGE magazines. Founded by five of the brands’ original team members, Threadneedle


Media aims to further boost the success of the publications by introducing a fresh new approach. Square Mile, currently celebrating its 150th issue, is a luxury brand


targeting those working in London’s financial services industries. The magazine is distributed monthly to 60,000 executives alongside weekly newsletters and an online platform. The hedge fund community is a global business worth more than


$3tn, with 20% of these assets controlled in London. HEDGE is the world’s only lifestyle magazine catering to these highly affluent hedge fund managers and has a distribution of more than 7,500. Shakespeare Martineau assisted in structuring the management buyout and supported on all legal aspects of the acquisition. Lisa Botterill (pictured), Partner in the corporate team


at Shakespeare Martineau, said: “The passion and dedication of the magazines’ new directors is clear to see, and I’m certain the business will go from strength to strength under the management. This is a major transformation for the business, one that we have assisted in all legal aspects, and I look forward to witnessing its continued success.”


includes a petition which calls on employers to make some basic changes to the way they attract and recruit. The petition is calling for


employers to create entry-level roles, provide details of recruitment processes, acknowledge receipt of all applications, provide examples of progression and make diversity and inclusion a top priority. The petition is also being


promoted to young people to ask them to sign the petition to encourage employers to make these changes. Suraya said: “The campaign has


two messages; for young people we are asking questions such as ‘Are you frustrated with the lack of feedback?’ and employers are being asked ‘Does your recruitment process positively show that you care?’ “If employers are struggling to


recruit then maybe it’s time to make some changes. We hope this campaign will have a big impact on future generations trying to get access to work.” The petition is now live on Change.org and the Employment Accessibility Report has been published on Access Generation’s website.
