We are thrilled to share the news that this week, several companies have become part of a movement which is focused on increasing inclusivity and equality within UK manufacturing and engineering, by signing the Made Equal Employer pledge. 

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Central Fasteners, Additive-X, Transicon, Ansaldo Nuclear, Rowan Precision and Crompton Controls for their dedicated efforts in promoting equality and embracing diversity. Building on this positive momentum, Made is taking steps to enhance its Made Equal and Made Futures employer branding project, with a mission to support employers in connecting underrepresented groups. 

This initiative aims to elevate your employer branding endeavours, broaden your pool of diverse talent, and foster the exchange of inclusive recruitment best practices. One of the key ways in which it does this, is through giving those who take the pledge access to an Employer Toolkit.

Within the employer toolkit, you will find a diverse selection of top-notch 'Made' employer branding logos and assets. As a member, you'll also enjoy exclusive access to valuable resources via the Made Platform, empowering you to showcase your job vacancies on the esteemed Made Futures job board. 

Furthermore, the Made in Group platform provides a convenient job vacancy template, allowing you to create tailored social ads with ease. By leveraging these powerful tools, you can effectively convey your organisation's unwavering commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion, both within your team and to the world outside.
