Kolt Free

Team Lead - Temporary Division / Certified DEI Practitioner

Kolt is part of our Temporary Placement Division where he not only works on the desk as an Account Manager and Recruiter, but also as the Temp Team Lead who supports and manages this division. Kolt is also a certified DEI practitioner. In addition to his day-to-day responsibilities as Account Manager and Team Lead, he work closely with Clarity’s Leadership Team and Director of Communications on our internal professional development series which includes quarterly DEI education, Clarity U. He also supports content development for The Clarity Collective, Clarity’s virtual event community.

After graduating from the University of Tennessee, Kolt moved to New York City in 2015 and started his career with Clarity as a temp candidate. He developed experience with some of Clarity’s amazing clients in that time and was then invited in-house to cover a maternity leave. When he was invited on board permanently as a recruiting coordinator, Kolt jumped at the opportunity and the rest is history!  This was just the beginning of Kolt’s ascent toward a leadership position at Clarity. He has since developed a deeply empathetic approach to relationship building, a solutions-oriented approach to the greatest recruitment challenges, and a strong desire to educate our internal team and clients on the nuts and bolts of what inclusive hiring practices entail.

Prior to making the move to the Big Apple, Kolt studied psychology and social activist theatre, including a stint abroad in Malta focusing on interculturalism. Today, in New York City, when Kolt isn’t working, enjoys hanging out with his four-legged friend, Gus, traveling, and seeing as many Broadway shows as he can.
