In 2014, 10.7% of graduates had stated that they had a disability yet less than 2% of graduate jobs were filled by disabled applicants. This is hardly surprising considering the lack of support and practical advice available to this talent pool.
www.greatwithdisability.com provides students with a disability or long-term health condition with all the information they need as they apply for graduate jobs and go through the recruitment process. It specifically provides information which is relevant to them such as being open about their disability, requesting adjustments, accounting for gaps in their CV, a lack of work experience, etc.
In the short time since www.greatwithdisability.com was launched, a huge range of organisations from a variety of industry sectors have become listed on the website.
In addition to our 3 key sponsors, Barclays, EDF Energy and EY, these include Goldman Sachs, Airbus, Linklaters and National Grid.
