Useful sites for finding work with a disability, impairment or health condition: part two
You may have spotted our earlier post where we listed resources for students and graduates with a disability, impairment or health condition.
Having recently attended a training day where we came across some further resources which we thought were really helpful, we thought we’d share them with you:
Target jobs article (written by Eddie Tunnah and Anna Preston) with tips and advice to help you decide whether, when and how to disclose your disability or health condition to an employer and sources of support
: highlights Government’s Access to Work scheme which provides practical support to help anyone with a disability to get work, stay in work, or start self-employment.
Our Equality and Diversity page We’ve recently added to this page which now has a comprehensive list of useful sites covering a range of diversity issues. The links to organisations supporting students and graduates with specific disabilities or impairments and specific employment schemes for students with disabilities – you’ll notice we have a particular focus on Autistic-Spectrum Disorders.
Great with Disability: Useful site with advice and tips about getting work as well as internship and graduate scheme vacancies
Employ-Ability: Although mentioned in our last post, we had a talk from someone from Employ-Ability at our training event and wanted to point out that you can register with the site to receive tailored support even if you’re not applying for one of their excellent internship or vacancy opportunities.
