Unify launches to enhance diversity across financial and professional services

Chelsea Karaolis, a former director of specialist recruitment and growth consultancy Scene, has recently launched her own recruitment company, Unify.

Unify is focused on enhancing workplace diversity and addressing systemic imbalances within the financial and professional services sector.

According to a company statement, the name Unify embodies its core purpose: to foster a sense of cohesion and collaboration, regardless of barriers to entry such as socioeconomic background, disability, gender, ethnicity, education, age or neurodiversity.

“Unify understands that the greatest value-add to any organisation is in increasing the supply of high-performing, diverse talent,” founder and CEO Karaolis told Recruiter. “Building Unify has been an exciting journey, allowing me to seamlessly blend purpose and passion with my career. At Unify, we strive to create a space that fosters meaningful connection and professional growth, regardless of who you are or what background you come from. 

“In the future, I hope that Unify is the recruitment partner of choice when creating an inclusive working environment and building diverse, high-performing teams within your organisation.”
