"As a wheelchair user I am used to the barriers that disabled people can face... I was really impressed that Equal Approach removed the majority of those barriers for me."
“I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the support and professionalism I have received from Equal Approach during my recent job search.
As a wheelchair user I am used to the barriers that disabled people can face when looking for a new role, so I was really impressed that Equal Approach did exactly what they said they would do, and removed the majority of those barriers for me.
I am also a HR Professional used to working in senior roles so I understand what Recruiting Managers and HR Departments should be doing to encourage applications from diverse communities, but unfortunately often fail to do. Equal Approach provides a service that benefits both the job seeker and the employer, and this can only be a positive for organisations when attracting and recruiting talent.
One area I was particularly impressed with was being given the opportunity to visit the company I had applied to, to ensure that I was comfortable accessing their premises. Also that Equal Approach proactively managed with the employer the fact that I'm a wheelchair user and supported us both throughout the process.
I was successful in securing the role and believe that my new employer and I will enjoy a mutually beneficial future together.
It was great to be involved with an organisation that actually delivers on the principles that it sets out to uphold. I would have no hesitation in endorsing Equal Approach and would welcome the opportunity of working with them again as an employer / recruiter.”
