Our mission at Careers with Disabilities is to connect disabled jobseekers with employers ready to make a difference. With the right tools and resources, all employers can take steps towards greater disability inclusivity and access a whole pool of often-overlooked talent. 

We know that many employers, organisations and businesses want to improve disability representation in their workplace but don’t know where to start. Or they don’t feel equipped enough to begin that process. We are here to show you the right information and use the right tools to begin including disabled candidates in your recruitment search today. 

Five ways we can help employers to be more disability-inclusive  

Connect you to disabled candidates looking for work 

This is the most practical, and perhaps the most important, service we can offer you. By buying a job credit and advertising your jobs on the Careers with Disabilities jobs board, you directly reach out to disabled candidates looking for work. The easiest way to be more inclusive of disabled people is to actively encourage them to apply for your roles. Using our platform is doing precisely that.   

Showcase you as a diversity champion 

Our company profiles are a great way to show what your organisation is about and how you are taking steps to be more disability-friendly. You can add your logo, a description, a video, your social media links, as well as a statement about your inclusivity policy. Others can browse our profiles to see which employers are championing diversity. 

Help you to navigate supporting Disability at work with our resources. 

We have a whole range of resources and information guides to help you feel more confident when hiring disabled candidates and supporting them at work. Our disability advice hub has guides on over 20 disabilities and health conditions, so you can learn what they are and what extra support they might require. You can also find information on accessibility, assistive technology and reasonable adjustments. 

Get you started on your Disability Confident journey. 

Many employers looking to open their doors to disabled jobseekers start their journey by becoming a Disability Confident employer. Disability Confident is a government scheme that aims to empower employers to be more inclusive to disabled candidates. We can help you progress through the scheme by using our site and showing you are taking active steps towards inclusivity. Find out more on our site. 

Promote you to others through our marketing services 

Through our social media posts and E-shot promotions, you can show other employers and potential job seekers how far you have come. We offer various marketing services, all aimed at showcasing your business and the work you do for disability inclusivity. You can find out more about those on our services page. 

If you are interested in any of the services mention throughout this article, visit our For Employer hub to access them and more.
