Here's one we missed when it was originally published. Greater Manchester's Hidden Talent team have published an updated version of their employer toolkit.

This learning resource provides easy-to-implement tips for employers. These can make recruitment processes more accessible for young people, ensuring a diverse range of talent is not overlooked. Although the focus is on opening up opportunity to young people with barriers to work, much of the toolkit's advice is good recruitment practice for any and all demographics.
