As the UK’s leading talent agency, we have a responsibility to positively impact the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion of the industries we service.
We partner with our clients to create recruitment processes that will improve DE&I to create impactful change within their organisations.
Utilising our support network
Over the years we have nurtured a number of key networks and partnerships, forming an organic support system that helps us to highlight and address DE&I within the industry. Through us, our clients can tap into the wealth of knowledge and talent within those networks, to enable a more diverse and representative workforce.
Creating ‘long list’ quotas
We recognise that talent pools in some areas may not be as diverse as we would like and it can be difficult to find diverse candidate representation. We offer a long list service that allows us to provide you with candidates who will have transferable skills, stepping up or looking to get back into the industry.
Embracing Earn Your Worth
Our Earn Your Worth initiative launched in 2017 with the aim of ending the gender pay gap through bias-free hiring. We do not request candidate’s current salaries before or during the interview process thus allowing candidates to represent their worth to potential employers.
By 2022, we aim to present a petition to government to ensure all salary information is removed from the hiring process, ensuring candidates earn their worth.

Utilising diverse job boards
This year Major Players will spend 30% of our advertising budget on job boards and advertising aimed at increasing the diversity of our talent pool across gender, disability, sexuality, age and race.
Collecting and analysing our data to drive policy and change
We endeavour to collect diversity data on all of our candidates enabling us to clearly identify disparities highlighted in our talent pools and act upon them. This will also allow us to identify diverse talent.
Delivering unconscious bias training to minimise bias
We recognise that bias starts at the point of candidate application, to address this, all of our talent partners receive ongoing unconscious bias training.
15% of our business are qualified to deliver Unconscious Bias Training to continue to support Major Players and also deliver the training externally to our clients.
Implementing blinds CV campaigns to maximise diverse workforces
We support our client partners with Blind CV recruitment campaigns – removing data such as names and education and background enabling a more unbiased approach.
Utilising psychometric testing
We provide cutting-edge psychometric testing as part of our recruitment process, offering accurate data on candidate’s motivations and personality traits. This allows a completely unbiased assessment of a candidate’s suitability for a role.
