Our work to make cinema jobs fairer

The last year has given us renewed focus on what kind of industry we are making and who has a chance to contribute. Our jobs board is free to access for both recruiters and job seekers and we think it’s a good use of this service to try and push for better jobs, better recruitment and better employment across the industry. We've recently published a new policy for this service which outlines the requirements for posting with us and provides some best practice recommendations for recruiters, which we hope will contribute to creating a fairer industry and help employers to find the best candidates. In this blog, the ICO's Projects and Business Manager Duncan Carson discusses the thinking behind these changes.
