EFL: New Recruitment Regulation Introduced to Help Improve Equality

3:00 pm Friday, 7 June 2019  
EFL clubs will have to interview at least one Black, Asian or ethnic minority (BAME) candidate for a first-team manager's position from next season following an 18-month trial period, which saw clubs make a voluntary commitment to the rule.
The so-called 'Rooney Rule' is a National Football League (NFL) policy which requires the league's 32 teams to interview BAME candidates for head coaching and senior operation roles.

In a statement, released via the EFL's official website, the organisation confirms; 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.
