Careers with Disabilities are excited to announce the launch of our business directory and jobs board. Our website now provides a practical method for disabled candidates to connect with inclusive employers.
The primary purpose of Careers with Disabilities is to provide support, guidance and up-to-date information to disabled jobseekers and employers across the UK. Our website is full of employment advice, including career opportunities, grants and schemes, and how to find help in your area. Alongside these essential resources, we identified the need to offer disabled jobseekers and inclusive employers a practical method to connect.
Employers often struggle to connect with disabled candidates. It can be difficult for disabled jobseekers to quickly identify which employers commit to inclusive and accessible policies via conventional job searching websites. This is why the Careers with Disabilities employer directory and jobs board differ from traditional job board sites on a number of grounds.
The Careers with Disabilities jobs board is specifically tailored for disabled jobseekers. Our specialist features include:
- Enabling disabled jobseekers to easily identify which employers are Disability Confident through our directory profiles.
- Offering disabled jobseekers the chance to read about an organisation’s accessibility commitments, inclusive policies and diversity goals.
- Up-to-date guidance, support and advice to ensure job searching goes as smoothly as possible. This includes tips on CV writing, cover letter writing, and how to excel in an interview.
