Anonymous CV scheme 'a step closer'

A new government scheme to ensure the nation's businesses only choose workers based on their skills and suitability for the job, rather than their social background, has taken a step closer after 100 major employers signed up to it.

The Business Compact scheme was launched by deputy prime minister Nick Clegg and forms part of his social mobility strategy, which aims to create a "what you know, not who you know" recruitment culture in the UK.

Already, major organisations such as Barclays and Coca-Cola have joined the coalition initiative, one element of which is ensuring that people from all backgrounds and schools are aware of work experience opportunities, rather than places only being offered to people on the basis of their social connections.

"By opening their doors to young people from all walks of life, this marks the start of a culture shift among major employers, driven by the belief that ability and drive should trump connections and privilege," Mr Clegg explained.

The scheme has also been supported by a number of employment organisations, with Jeya Thiruchelvam, employment law editor at XpertHR, noting that the anonymous CV plans were "a step in the right direction".

  1. This is quite funny. MP's have used their position to get top internshipships for their children for years. Tony Blair did it, and many Tory's have done so also.
