Rare’s Business in the Community Race Equality Award Winning Contextual Recruitment System uses big data to help organisations identify candidates with the greatest potential.
It allows recruiters to see, at a glance, not just the achievements of candidates, but the context in which those achievements were gained.
The system uses an algorithm to embed social mobility metrics into companies existing graduate recruitment processes. It takes into consideration several factors, including postcode, school quality, eligibility for free school meals, refugee status and time spent in care, among others.
Since its launch in 2015, hundreds of people have got jobs in top organisations through the CRS, and are thriving.
