As the FE sector’s leading group of search and recruitment specialists, we are writing this joint letter to draw your attention to the collective statement that we have produced to support the development of open, inclusive and anti-racist recruitment practices in colleges.

Inspired and challenged by the Black FE Leadership Group’s Ten Point Plan, we have spent much of this calendar year working in partnership with each other and the BFELG to shape a joint commitment to ensuring anti-racist and diverse recruitment practices are implemented across our activities as a matter of course.

You will find a copy of our statement and the clear commitments we are making to the sector, our clients, our candidates and the wider FE workforce, leadership and governance communities below.

The next step for this collaborative partnership is the development of our individual company action plans which will proactively address imbalances in the diversity of leadership at all levels.

We look forward to working in continued partnership with you, to enhance opportunities and to develop leadership and governance that better reflects society and the sector.

Please contact Drew Richardson-Walsh, Director of our Education Practice, to discuss the steps already being taken to help organisations develop their board and leadership teams so they are more reflective of society as a whole.
