About Us

At Evenfields we attract and engage with a diverse workforce from local communities. We’re a grassroots organisation from the West Midlands using diversity recruitment and communications to help jobseekers from diverse communities, particularly black and ethnic minorities.

We are successful black professionals with a wealth of experience in HR, Recruitment, Communications and Customer Relationships. As a grassroots local business we understand the struggles of the communities we work with because we have shared them.

Evenfields shares vacancies and opportunities for work where people can feel comfortable and included. We help businesses to communicate to their current workforce why diversity is so important and how it can benefit the business, the workforce and the customers.

 

We also work within schools to provide students with focused career guidance.

 

The black and ethnic minority communities we work with are a mix of students, graduates and experienced hires who can fit into any industry or layer of an organisation.
