The perils of ‘finder fees’ for mates and the ‘blind recruiting’ apps that could help

Blind recruiting processes have had some success in Australia. Earlier this year, the Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed that after concealing the names, genders and other identifying details from the candidates who applied for 19 different senior roles, 15 of those who were ultimately successful turned out to be female. This was significant, given just 21% of is most senior officers were female prior to the recruitment round.

Other local employers including Australia Post, EY and Victoria Police have also signed up for new blind recruitment program via a Victorian Government pilot called Recruit Smarter.
