This week’s new launches include: Fawcett Society, Indeed Flex, REC

Indeed Flex, an online marketplace for flexible workers, has launched a new initiative to enable Ukrainian refugees to find work in the UK. It has hired a Ukrainian-speaking onboarding team, based in the UK, to guide refugees through the process. Candidates from Ukraine will not need to fill in long application forms, and can instead talk through their work background, skills and the sort of job they’d like with the onboarding team in an online interview. Indeed Flex’s team will then find them suitable roles in their chosen area of the UK. Indeed Flex has launched its app in Ukraine, enabling those planning to come to Britain to secure offers of work before they even arrive.

• The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) and the Fawcett Society, a membership charity campaigning  for gender equality and women’s rights, have formed a partnership to produce a guide for recruiters to end the practice of asking job applicants about how much they earned in previous jobs. The REC and Fawcett Society guide contains information on the workforce issues caused by asking about salary history, and practical tips on how to address these problems.
