How we help disabled students
EmployAbility works with disabled university students and graduates to ease the transition from education into employment. Our highly skilled team offers free support, advice and guidance throughout the entire recruitment process, including:
- Guidance on preparing CVs and completing application forms
- How to perform well at interviews and assessment centres
- Mock interview sessions with key employers
- Recommendations regarding disability inclusive employers
- Advice on sensitive issues such as disclosure of a disability
- Information and advice regarding reasonable adjustments that may be required during the recruitment process and/or in the workplace
- Opportunities to attend specialist recruitment events
Alongside support and advice, we exclusively run a wide range of internships and graduate recruitment programmes on behalf of many of the most prestigious and progressive blue-chip and public sector organisations.
We have already helped more than 250 students and graduates to access work experience programmes and graduate roles, and have given 1-2-1 support to hundreds of others. Have a look at some of our student and graduate testimonials.
In order to promote our services and our programmes, we are always keen to deepen our relationships with Universities – including Careers Advisors, Disability Officers, Faculty Members, and Disabled Student societies and groups. Besides posting our programmes on university careers websites, and attending major Graduate Fairs, we also have a rolling programme of Campus Visits and Skills Workshops during which we can offer 1-to-1 sessions and advice on issues of disclosure, application writing, and other areas.
We also run training sessions for careers and disability officers on the question of ‘disclosure of disability’ amongst others, in order to equip you to better advise and support your disabled students.
If you would like to talk to us about arranging a Campus Visit or Skills Workshop at your University, or attendance at one of your events or fairs, please contact us. You should also sign-up to receive our quarterly eAbility newsletter, with news of new programmes and visits scheduled.
