What if a candidate does not respond?
There are a number of legitimate reasons why you may not have received a response from a candidate. It’s possible, for example, that your email may have ended up in their spam folder.
We would recommend checking if the candidate has included any other contact details (e.g. a contact telephone number) as part of their application.
It’s also worth revisiting their application to check that you have accommodated any reasonable adjustments they may have requested.
If you find that you regularly do not hear back from candidates, there could be an accessibility issue. If you need any assistance with making your website and job posts more accessible, Patchwork Hub and our impact partners can help. To find out more about our services, please get in touch.
