British employers are regularly discriminating against candidates from ethnic minority backgrounds – with the applicants’ names often being the cause for recruiters to dismiss them.
Researchers at Nuffield College's Centre for Social Investigation (CSI) applied to nearly 3200 jobs, randomly varying the minority background of fictitious job applicants while holding their skills, qualifications and work experience constant. All of the fake candidates were British citizens, or had moved to the UK by the age of six.
