At [company name] we use Applied for our recruitment. Applied aims to overcome unconscious bias in recruiting. Instead of using your CV [alone], we'll be asking you to answer questions to test skills needed for the role. The responses are then anonymised, chunked, randomised and reviewed by team members. The Applied platform also asks some demographic questions before you start your application. [company name] never sees the responses to these demographic questions with your application. We only see summary statistics to help us check if our candidate pool is balanced and if everyone has an equal chance to get hired irrespective of their background. If you prefer, you can easily opt out of answering these questions.
