Improving diversity and ensuring a positive candidate experience


Howden Group wanted a fast and efficient end to end recruitment campaign where they could hire 8-9 candidates while championing diversity, targeting specifically students from a BAME background, and maintaining a positive candidate experience.


  • Bright Network designed, planned and delivered a six week virtual end to end recruitment campaign to meet Howden’s requirements.
  • Hyper-targeted digital activity to attract diverse applicants in line with Howden’s objective for this campaign.
  • Full end-to-end candidate attraction, screening and selection, including CV screening, gamified testing, and the design and delivery of assessment centres.

The candidates were diverse as we wanted, but also of extremely high quality. It was so much better than my previous experiences of grad days.

We had an amazing experience working with Bright Network. We were able to attract and hire the most diverse range of graduates we have ever hired as a group and were so blown away with the calibre of the candidates we hired an additional four individuals than we had planned to.
