Listed in the order in which they joined the Good + Fair Employers Club, here is what our members say about why they value the community so much!

“Being a member of the Good + Fair Employers Club is exceptionally valuable for us here at Royal Mail. The discussions with our fellow members add so much to our knowledge of what’s happening in the early careers space, and the regular online meet-ups have been vital as the world has tried to navigate the impact of Covid-19, and as we try to minimise the impact on young people. I was so impressed by how fast the club pivoted to deliver the sessions we all needed, at the height of the chaos. As we move on from that time, it remains hugely reassuring to know that other early careers teams are facing the same challenges that we are, and to hear how we are all innovating and coming up with solutions. As a community of large organisations who want to keep offering opportunities to young people, it makes sense to share the best ideas, so we can all do more of what’s working and lead by example to others in our respective industries.” Jade Kiddy, Graduate and Talent Manager, Royal Mail (Photo below of Jade’s colleague John Hynard speaking at our spring 2019 event at Channel 4, alongside KPMG’s Charlotte Carter and Google’s Amanda Timberg)

“EY is an early supporter of Graduate Fog’s work on unpaid internships and we were pleased to formalise this relationship by joining the Good + Fair Employers Club. We’re proud of our track record as a responsible employer of young people, and we’re keen to make sure we remain a leader by continuing to learn, as well as sharing our knowledge. We all face big, complex challenges, so collaboration is vital as we all look to progress. We are often invited to join employers’ networks but the Good + Fair Employers Club stood out because of their shared outlook on responsible employment, the calibre of its members, and their commitment to diversity, inclusion and fair access for all young people. We were also impressed that we had to pass a test to join the Club – we’ve never been asked to do that before!” James Gordanifar, Head of UK Student Recruitment at EY (Photo taken at our Members’ Summer Lunch, June 2019)

“As soon as we heard about the Good + Fair Employers Club, we wanted to learn more. The calibre of employers already on board confirmed this is a movement we want to be a part of. Accenture is committed to leading on diversity and social mobility within early careers. Having launched a number of new sourcing initiatives and transformed our assessments process, we have some excellent stories to share with other leading employers. However we are also aware that the pace of change is fast, and by attending regular discussions to hear best practice from fellow industry leaders, it will enable us to maintain a strong future focus.” – Joan Moore, Head of Early Talent at Accenture
