Webinar: Scrap the CV: it's time to start selecting for potential

Watch our latest webinar, where our panellists: Robert Newry - CEO and Co-founder of Arctic Shores, Janine Garn - Head of Talent Acquisition, Diversity & Inclusion at Leyton, Mari Milsom - Independent Resourcing, Social Value and Workforce Consultant, discuss the importance of scrapping the CV from our hiring processes. Backed by real-life examples and success stories.

Key takeaways:

  • Why now is the time to scrap the CV
  • The common barriers to making the change, and how to overcome them
  • How pioneering TA leaders get internal buy-in to scrap the CV.


Year after year, someone predicts the death of the CV. And yet, year after year, employers keep on using it. Why? Our research suggests a perceived lack of alternatives. The CV is rarely seen as the best tool, but rather the only tool. Until now, that is.

And it’s just as well – today, we’re in the middle of the greatest skills mismatch since the Industrial Revolution. As the digital economy looks set to create nearly 100m new roles in just three years, selecting for experience no longer makes sense. It’s time to find new ways to assess job fit. In this webinar, we’ll explore how a few pioneers are doing just that.
