Design a careers stand to help recruit people from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Designing a Careers Stand

At the end of 2020, ABP was invited to join the Diversity in Maritime (Women in Maritime) Charter programme. ABP’s ports in Southampton and East Anglia will initially be a part of the programme, with a long-term intention of other locations joining.

To go along with our charter, we need to design adverts and a careers stand that will attract a diverse range of candidates to meet our recruitment goals. We need to be able to show everyone the variety of careers that our company can offer, and that ABP is an attractive employer which provides many benefits to its employees.

You should consider ways to make our stand unique and stand out from the crowd by considering things such as promotional materials, interactive activities, or virtual options. You will also need to develop ways of following up with people who are interested in working for us and ways to evaluate how successful the stand is in attracting a diverse range of candidates. This can be done by researching ways that other organisations have made successful recruitment activities or by gathering data on what makes an attractive careers stand.
