DSTL ( Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) are project managing a defence-innovation led drive to recruit a more diverse specialist workforce. The campaign’s aim will be to increase inclusiveness by creating more diversity in our STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) community. We are looking to recruit in both early and mid-career. We will use a specialist agency and expert diversity and inclusion interest groups to advise on how to appeal to this audience, including language, format and targeting. We intend to attract a more diverse range of candidates under a wide range of protected characteristics, who have a STEM background. An added benefit is that it will help to deliver on one of the GSE Profession Board’s priorities in terms of increasing diversity and inclusion of the Profession.
Defence Innovation are funding this campaign and are keen to work collaboratively across Government. Other departments will have the opportunity to shape the campaign and to benefit from any recruits. If you would like to be involved or find out more information, please send an email, outlining your interest and broad specification to the GSE Profession Team
