The Best Candidates

We help some of the world’s top organisations hire great candidates from diverse backgrounds.

Unconscious bias training

The first question we ask new clients is always the same: tell us what you’re looking for.

We have a database of almost ten thousand people who are at secondary school, or at university, or who have graduated. We work on apprenticeship, internship and graduate programmes. We use our cutting-edge contextual data to identify brilliant people from non-traditional backgrounds. We use our three-stage, in-person assessment process to make sure we send the right people to you and we use our one-on-one relationships with candidates to give them the personal development they need to compete in your processes with people from much more privileged backgrounds. And doing all this, we’ve helped hundreds and hundreds of brilliant people get into the best universities and the best jobs in the world.

Unconscious bias training

We do different things for different clients. For example:

Insight events
We have designed and run hundreds of events for top diverse students in the last twelve years. We love working with clients to create incredible events that bring employer brands to life and provide amazing candidate experiences. Every Rare event is different and every one receives the combination of love, expertise and attention to detail which, in our experience, makes events great.

Targeted recruitment campaigns
We design and implement bespoke recruitment campaigns for specific client programmes. We use careers services, student societies and our deep one-on-one relationships with diverse students to deliver outstanding results.

Bespoke development programmes
We have designed and created a number of specialist development programmes in-house to help candidates hone particular key skills required for particular career paths. There are five development programmes and a series of introductory career programmes: Civil Service SDIP Coaching Programme, Articles, Consult, Invest, Discuss and the Rare Foundations Series, which focus on Banking, Consulting, Law and Technology.

Unconscious bias training

We are experts at creating brands that resonate with top talent. After all, we are – or rather, were – our candidates: many people working at Rare, including one of our Directors, first came to Rare as candidates.

Brands we have created include:

  • Rare Foundations: Law
  • Rare Foundations: bankin
  • Rare Foundations: consulting
  • Rare Foundations: technology
  • excel-logo
  • Articles logo
  • discuss logo
  • invest logo
  • consult logo
  • ACS-Connect logo
  • Target Oxbridge logo

A change is going to come: Target Oxbridge will support 160 black highfliers in 2018

When Rare launched Target Oxbridge back in 2012, we did so on a shoestring budget, using the network of our own Oxbridge team members to support and develop a handful of talented black candidates. Last year, we... read more
