The NHS Employers Diversity and Inclusion team and Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership Trust have published a new case study on the importance of working with the local community, to improve employee representation. 

The trust took action after reviewing workforce data that highlighted a significant under representation from BME communities at certain bands and roles. The case study explains how it used recruitment workshops to work with their local community and dispel common misconceptions among black and minority ethnic (BME) communities. 

As a result, over 60 people received coaching and information on NHS jobs and the trust saw a significant increase in the number of applications from BME communities and received positive feedback.
