Abdul-mueed Sheikh Talent Acquisition Executive
As a human rights enthusiast, Abdul believes it is essential for society to recognise the struggles and barriers marginalised communities face in the UK’s work climate. At DJM, Abdul is able to slowly break these barriers by bridging the gap between the diverse pool of candidates across the UK and connecting them to willing employers. He hopes to work in the Human Rights Law sector and focuses on law firms that work with DJM, to diversify the legal field.
Suzie Dickman Talent Acquisition Executive
Suzie believes diversity and inclusion is important in the workplace as it can make people feel more comfortable in being themselves. As a young woman, Suzie can sometimes feel like she’s invisible, but working at DJM she feels in sight. Companies with more diverse and inclusive teams have a 22% lower turnover rate than companies without it, so DJM’s mission of levelling the playing field is something she resonates with.
