Thanks for taking the time to respond @AndreasK
I’m sure that should be the case. And I’m reassured that recruitment is done on the basis of the best person with skills for the position.
It’s just I was surprised to hear the statement in the recruitment interview ‘if you’re young’. This would be equally upsetting if the statement had been ‘if you’re white’, or ‘if you’re male’, or ‘if you’re straight’.
I’m sure you can see how inappropriate such statements are. Similarly for the statement ‘if you’re young’. It can have the effect of putting off suitable candidates beyond a certain age range.
London is one of the most diverse and multi cultural cities in the world. Revolut should celebrate and reflect this diversity. I’m sure minorities (even in age related terms) exist within the Revolut workforce. It would be cool if we customers could see this diversity reflected in interviews, videos etc.
And I’m sure the HR department has a diversity strategy in place. This does not need to conflict with wanting the best people for the job.
