1) Providing specialist job board for recruitment of those with disabilities
As a specialist job board, we have three main purposes:
- For inclusive employers to attract more talented disabled candidates
- For disabled jobseekers to find work with employers who will value their skills
- To promote best practice around accessibility and inclusion in the workplace
Run by and for disabled people, our core service is the job board. Disabled jobseekers have the confidence to apply to employers who have paid to advertise their vacancies n a specialist job board for disabled people.
We also offer free live webinars for disabled candidates in job search issues, including when, if and how to discuss reasonable adjustments with prospective employers. This can prepare candidates for selling themselves well to employers, increasing their chances of employment.
We also offer free live webinars for employers in how to become more attractive to disabled candidates, and how to improve their accessibility and inclusion. This removes some of the barriers faced by disabled candidates.
Other activities involve promoting good practice through blogs, articles, speaking at events, holding our own events etc.
