We want a world with no discrimination in recruitment. Where all candidates get to showcase their skills and capabilities with a fair and unbiased recruitment process. We will achieve this through our tailor-made challenges and unique approach.
What we do
We offer employability initiatives for marginalised groups of society to provide a pathway from unpaid roles to paid employment. We want our participants to recognise that they are valuable to employers.
We partner with our facilitators to provide these tailor-made experiences. Once completed, the WoodMor team showcase this journey in a digital CV – called the ‘Me Movie’. This is a video diary of the WoodMor experience which captures these employability skills. This can be shared by the WoodMorer with their future employer.
Why it matters
This is so important because routes to traditional employment can be discriminatory and therefore can prevent marginalised communities from accessing jobs. We want everyone to have purposeful paid employment because our work gives us identity, purpose, meaning and structure, woodmor wants to be a key driver in this change.
We want the recruitment process to be fair so that all candidates can showcase their skills and capabilities.
The one thing I can say is that we are all unique and we are all human beings who deserve the same respect, regardless of our background, mistakes, colour of our skin, and/or physical or mental illnesses.
