Our Employment Service for Deaf and hard of hearing people is now available in every Jobcentre in the UK. What this means is that our UK wide network of Communication and Employment Consultants are available to support people to help them seek, find and keep real and meaningful work. If you want to hear one of our success stories, you can read about Agnese who is profoundly Deaf and from Latvia here . Our success in helping Deaf people who either have multiple barriers to getting into work or just need a quick “leg up” is testimony to the work that Bob and his team do. They build confidence, help with CVS, practice interview skills and have an extensive network of employers who pioneer disabled and deaf friendly HR practices. Their significant knowledge of Deaf culture and British Sign Language aligned with The Equalities Act help break down barriers with employers.
We have been busy, over the winter months, getting ourselves up ready to join the “Dynamic Purchasing System”, ran by the government for the Department of Work and Pensions. It is a completely electronic system that it does not operate in the same way as a traditional contract/framework – it is an ‘open market’ product designed to provide access to a pool of suppliers which can be constantly refreshed.
There are 7 regions covered by the system and this means that every job centre up and down the country can access our employment services. We are very proud to be the only specialist Deaf employment provider to be available Nationwide and able to roll our delivery at the twitch of a whisker.
If you would like to know more, ask at your local job centre and please do get in touch with Bob Marsh, the Employment Business Development Manager to find out about this or any of our other communication services.
