Job seekers no longer have to submit a CV when applying for positions at a major UK business.

Bosses at brewery Molson Coors argue that conventional career briefs can discriminate by focusing on where a candidate has gone to school or college.

Instead, prospective people undergo task-based psychological tests to find out how they will react in real workplace situations.

CEO Phil Whitehead said: “A CV is simply not necessary for every job position.

“They encourage recruiters to focus on details like the school or university someone attended, which doesn’t really speak to that person’s true potential.

“This increases the potential for unconscious bias to creep into the selection process and to the detriment of those who do not have the opportunity to attend a great school or access internships and work experience opportunities. .”

Molson Coors, based in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffs, Brews Carling, Aspall’s and Doom Bar said the move will include sales, HR and technology roles.

The tests will include a “neuroscientific behavioral assessment”.

“We believe in finding the right people for our business who embody the hidden talent, drive and holistic values ​​we seek,” said Mr. Whitehead. .

“We will then provide them with training and support.

“There are so many talented people out there — our responsibility is to find them.”
