Inclusive Recruitment The interview itself Answer 8.1.1 Attributes of an inclusive interview panel

The answer to the previous question: ‘which of the following would not help to make up an ideal inclusive interview panel?‘ is ‘panelists wearing suits and ties’.

An ideal inclusive interview panel will be made up of different genders, ethnicities and ages. It can sometimes be difficult to find suitable staff for such a panel and in these circumstances make sure that the candidate’s most obvious characteristics are represented by at least one of the interviewers.

It may be the case that you do not have enough senior people to sit in on the interview, in these circumstances consider asking suitable people from other, less senior, levels of the business to help out.
