The 2014 report continues to highlight a significant disparity in terms of gender, in terms of overall applications – 64.07% for men versus 35.45% for women. Banking and financial services, engineering and automotive are well represented which could account for some of the skew however most importantly the same trend appears as last year in regards to the conversion ratio, a significant indicator to assess any discrimination within the recruitment process. We can confidently say that the employers taking part in the research have the correct approach to recruiting for gender diversity.
