Do you have less than 25 employees?
If so, then you could benefit from a new tailored recruitment service to help you source disabled talent. The Small Employer Offer is a new package of support and advice from Jobcentre Plus to help raise awareness with small employers of the support available to them when employing a person with a long-term health condition or disability.
The Jobcentre Plus advisers will:
work with small employers to develop and maintain relationships
ensure the correct person is referred to a vacancy or work placement opportunity
support employers and their employees when completing Access to Work applications
provide help and advice on work adaptations and access needs
make available funding of £500 to you after 3 months employment for any ongoing needs such as mentoring, additional management time or training
If you are interested in the Small Employer Offer, further information about this package of support can be obtained from the Small Employer Advisor at your local Jobcentre Plus (details below)
