Support for Employers of Disabled People

Our exciting new Employers Academy is proving very successful.

Learn how to transform the culture and skills mix of your business, and how to recruit and retain people with disabilities through a range of activities provided by the academy, including free seminars and networking events.

Recruitment support includes:

  • Advice and guidance
  • Free breakfast workshops
  • A register of suitable candidates
  • Help with your recruitment process
  • Support from our dedicated Employer Liaison Officer
  • Support for up to 6 weeks when you employ one of our candidates
  • Signposting to wider support including Access to Work

At The Disability Resource Centre, we have been running an employ~ability programme to prepare our candidates for the workplace. We build confidence, identify key skills and develop their workplace skills including IT. Our Employer Liaison Officer will refer candidates to you who have the relevant skills and attributes that you are looking for. 

The benefits of working with The Disability Resource Centre to help diversify your workforce by employing people with disability are:

  • Our candidates have been through a development programme to make them ready for the workplace
  • The individuals are fully committed to going back into the workplace
  • We support you to have confidence in employing someone with a disability
  • You increase the pool of candidates available to you
  • We do not charge any recruitment costs to the employer
  • Our candidates bring a vast array of skills, knowledge and experience into your workplace
  • Employing the right person will have a positive impact on your business
