Barnardo's - engaging young people when recruiting staff

People paper cutouts

26 / 2 / 2016 12.01pm

Giving young people and families the opportunity to get involved in the recruitment of staff, for the services they access, can have huge benefits for both the young people and the organisation.

Over the years, Barnardo’s Helping Young People Engage team has helped to recruit hundreds of staff to North Bristol’s Community Children’s Health Partnership.

This new case study highlights how some young people were engaged in a recruitment process who had varying needs. They were keen to take part but were not very confident or articulate.

Barnardo’s helped to identify a way of drawing on the young people’s strengths and likes to involve them in a meaningful way which has a positive effect on the young people and the candidates.

Barnardo’s has years’ of experience in supporting employers who wish to involve children, young people and their families in the recruitment process.
