"Discrimination in the workplace sadly continues to exist...”
"In the past year, I have learned that discrimination in the workplace sadly continues to exist. On one occasion, a manager told me to check my disability at the door, and at a second job, the business manager implied that I lied about the severity of the physical limitations of my disability. So much for equal rights in the workplace...
When I moved back to the UK from Canada in the summer of 2015, I recognised that I would benefit from the services of an employment agency that would value my qualifications and present me to prospective employers based on my professional experience, regardless of my disability. I was referred to Equal Approach by the Business Disability Forum, and immediately I was directed through the proper channels for an assessment.
"As someone who lives with a physical disability, Equal Approach embraced and acknowledged my employment skills..."
The team was honest and supportive, and within weeks, I had procured an interview for two positions. My consultant vouched for my capabilities and even after the interview, worked thoroughly to secure a subsequent opportunity that became available with the same employer.
As someone who lives with a physical disability, Equal Approach have embraced and acknowledged my employment skills, thus providing the outlet to achieve my professional ambitions in London.
I feel blessed to have been referred to Equal Approach. If you're seeking employment and you require the support of an agency that values diversity and inclusion, look no further than Equal Approach!”
