Our internal hiring strategy

Taylor Toot recognises that a 'company fit' can create a group of recruiters who ultimately recruit and attract very similar candidates. We have revised our internal hiring process to encourage increased diversity across the business. This includes removing of qualifications from CVs, educating our consultant recruitment agencies and looking at competence and potential rather than background.


Through our volunteering programme we are developing a better understanding of power, privilege and social change. We are connecting our consultants to 'local realities' and educating ourselves on the power of becoming change agents for social action. Our partnership with Benefacto is enabling us to make this happen across Taylor Root.

We are also rolling this out to some of our other locations internationally throughout this year.
