Welcome to Careers with Disabilities, where we are dedicated to the goal of ensuring accessible opportunities for all disabled people in the UK.

With the help of our large network of UK businesses, we provide guidance and support to making careers more accessible for all. We believe that a disability should no longer be a barrier to anyone’s career.

By providing businesses with all the information they need to offer jobs for disabled people, such as guides on funding and reasonable adjustments, we will make sure that no one is left behind.

When businesses feel confident to start employing disabled candidates, we can support you through that process. We can help you to reach candidates through our jobs board and company profiles. And we can raise awareness of your business through our featured articles and social media.

For jobseekers, we have created guides to applying for jobs and knowing your rights, along with support for choosing the right career, to make sure you reach your future potential.

By breaking down the stigma around accessibility and hiring disabled people, we can make sure that disabled people’s diverse array of skills are no longer overlooked.
