Disabled Workers Employment
Is a registered charity that supports disabled people looking for work It lists the latest job opportunities and provides a space where you can showcase your skills online.
Disability is the result of disabling environments. The inherent biases in existing recruitment processes and working environments disable many individuals from obtaining and thriving in employment. Our role is to disrupt this status quo and current ways of doing things. We drive the conversation beyond compliance, empowering employers through a road map of practical solutions and achievable goals to ensure all people are truly included.
What Incluzy does, is help disabled job seekers find work within companies who are committed to inclusion. Covering a range of conditions, Incluzy helps to prepare prospective employees for adapting to a new environment and also aims to educate employers about any adaptations they may need to make to cater to the needs of their new staff members.
