New recruitment Regulation introduced in EFL to help improve equality

The EFL has today made a further commitment to improving equality in first-team football by introducing a recruitment code into Regulations in order to help address the under-representation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) managers.

It follows an 18-month trial period, with EFL Clubs voluntarily committing to interview at least one BAME candidate when undertaking a recruitment process for any managerial position in first-team football. 

That commitment has now been formalised with the introduction of a new Regulation ensuring that the principle of providing more opportunities to BAME candidates is mandatory when Clubs consider multiple applicants for a role.
