Top Job Boards for Ethnic Diversity

How to find and attract BAME talent

Increasing ethnic diversity in your organisation can take time and persistence, but you're in the right place to move the needle. Many recruiters forget that the job boards chosen to advertise a role can influence how many minority candidates apply.

Having now had over 100,000 candidates apply for jobs through our platform, Applied can leverage its data to share which job boards appear to be best for ethnically diverse job hunters. Curious to know how we came up with this list? We wrote a blog about it here.

If you're looking to do more than just advertise in the right space, Applied provides a Job Description Analysis Tool which makes writing inclusive and gender neutral job descriptions a whole bunch easier. Try it out here.

Why we do this

Applied is a data-driven end-to-end recruitment platform focused on quality and diversity of hire. We track which job boards our candidates come from, and can combine this at a high-level with the assessment scores and diversity breakdown of those groups of candidates from our platform.

We decided to democratise this data to start helping teams making data-driven (rather than gut-driven!) hiring decisions. Please treat it as indicative at the moment, but we’ve written a bit more about what the data is, where it comes from and what it is not, here.
