Meet the Team
Founder Joe Sweeney and Managing Director Nicky Wright have known and worked together in various guises over the years. Like many a good story, this started with a random conversation about how employers can attract diverse talent. Nicky passionately described how important it is to engage with all talent from the beginning of the hiring journey so employers have a greater pool to recruit from. Underrepresented groups and communities may often not feel comfortable applying for roles on generalist boards, so, why not create job boards they will feel more comfortable applying for.
Why? Because the hiring employers have a strong diversity and inclusion strategy. It's a Win: Win so in 2020 Diversity Jobs Group was founded with Nicky joining full-time in 2021.
