Digital Marketing Assistant, UNiDAYS


Background: UNiDAYS aimed for a gold standard in diversity and inclusion by attracting under-represented candidates and supporting their career growth, partnering with us to achieve these goals.

Collaboration: We advertised UNiDAYS' junior positions on our job board and promoted them in our newsletter to our diverse community. We also hosted series of online careers events.

Hiring Results: While other sources may have generated a higher number of applications, our candidates excelled in the application process resulting in all positions were being filled by 8 ethnic minority candidates from community, leading UNiDAYS to give us early access to future junior-level positions.

Mentorship Programme: We coordinated a three-month career mentorship programme, connecting nearly 100 young people with UNiDAYS employees for virtual mentoring.

Impact: This collaboration allowed UNiDAYS to positively impact the lives and careers of under-represented young people, providing them with valuable knowledge, skills, and connections. UNiDAYS also gained a diverse and talented workforce that enriches company culture and fosters innovation.

Case Study: Increasing Black representation in Football with adidas & #Merky

“On the pitch, we do our thing. But off the pitch, it’s like we don’t exist. That’s all about to change.”


Background: #Merky FC Football Careers is the first initiative from the collaboration between adidas and Stormzy, aimed at creating leadership opportunities in the football industry for the Black community. Adidas approached DIVERSE. due to our expertise in helping Black young professionals into employment.

Collaboration: We influenced the strategy of the programme and manage a community of Black candidates under 24, regularly providing them with career support via chat and virtual group sessions. We then created an innovative and inclusive recruitment process, filtered applications based on potential, and conducted first-round interviews before connecting them to roles in top football organisations.

Hiring Results: Our efforts successfully connected candidates with organisations such as Sky Sports, Manchester United, Fulham FC, GOAL, and LADbible.

Impact: The #Merky FC programme has helped to raise awareness for this issue, breakdown barriers, change perspectives and created valuable careers opportunities to young Black professionals.
