Inclusive Vacancy Texts - a Guide

Attracting and retaining "talent" is one of the strategic pillars of diversity and inclusivity policy. From this point of view, one can ask how we want to define talent at UM, based on what criteria we think someone is really suitable for the position and fits into a team, and thus think about inclusive ways of recruitment. 

The recruitment and selection process consists of many steps and the job posting is only one of them. With this guide, we aim to lend a hand in improving vacancy texts so that more people are attracted to UM as an employer and consider applying.

The guide is intended for anyone involved in writing job ads. This guide was created from collaboration with HR recruitment, FEM (Female Empowerment network) and the D&I Office.
