Giving disabled candidates an Evenbreak

One of the questions our employment team often get asked is ‘Where can I find listings of jobs from employers who I know are inclusive?’

As well as top tips for searching for jobs, we created a list of accessible websites and job search apps: www.pocklington-trust.org.uk/employment/employment-resources/job-search-tips/

Among the websites on this page is Evenbreak.  This is not a charity but a social enterprise that exists to ensure:

  • Inclusive employers can reach and retain a skilled and diverse pool of talent.
  • Talented disabled candidates can access a range of opportunities with employers who put talent first.
  • People know about the business benefits gained from an inclusive workplace.

 

Jane Hatton, CEO of Evenbreak said: “Evidence shows that disabled people are, on average, just as productive as non-disabled people and have less time off sick, fewer workplace accidents and stay in their jobs longer.

 

“We, and many employers, also know that having a diversity of thought in the business can foster creativity and innovation. Disabled people bring additional skills gained through facing barriers every day – persistence, creativity, problem-solving, determination, to name a few. And having internal intelligence can help companies tap into the ‘purple pound’.

 

“Employers who advertise on Evenbreak are actively aiming to attract disabled candidates for these reasons.”

 

If you are actively looking for a new job, why not take a look at our job search tips and search Evenbreak’s latest roles. Evenbreak will soon be launching a new service, offering relevant and accessible careers support delivered by careers professionals with lived experience of disability. Watch this space!
