Baker & McKenzie and Hogan Lovells launch ‘contextual recruiting’ A first of its kind contextual recruitment tool has been launched to boost social mobility and ensure firms don’t overlook promising talent. Graduate diversity recruitment company Rare’s Contextual Recruitment System (CRS) embeds social mobility metrics into an organisation’s existing graduate recruitment process, enabling it to measure an applicant’s potential in the context of their background. Factors taken into account include a candidate’s home postcode, school attended, whether they were eligible for free school meals, if the first generation in their immediate household went to university, and whether they were ever in care or once a refugee or asylum seeker.
