Treloar’s are proud to announce that we have been awarded an enhanced Disability Confident Employer status.
This upgraded status recognises our commitment to the Treloar’s values of being inclusive, and acting with integrity and respect. It demonstrates that we go the extra mile in making sure we are inclusive of disability in recruitment and selection, as well as retaining and developing staff.
Being part of the Disability Confident scheme helps Treloar’s to recruit and retain high quality, skilled and loyal staff. We know it will help us to attract candidates from the widest possible pool of talent. It helps Treloar’s to demonstrate that we treat all employees fairly and welcome everyone equally. Inclusivity runs right through the heart of our work here, and so we’re pleased this is being reflected in our recruitment process.
The Disability Confident scheme is a government backed campaign to encourage employers to become more confident about employing disabled people. Disability Confident is creating a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled people.
Treloar’s are proud to be part of the Disability Confident campaign and play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better. We’re striving to change behaviour and cultures from within and beyond our campus, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices. To learn more and read real examples of how we support our employees, there are case studies online.
We are pleased to be one of the thousands of Disability Confident businesses who are removing barriers to disabled people in employment and benefitting from their skills. Our top priority is finding the best people to join our workforce, and by being a Disability Confident employer we are able to create an inclusive and diverse organisation.
There are around 7.7 million people of working age with a disability or a long-term health condition in the UK, but only around half of them are in work. This represents a huge pool of untapped talent. The Disability Confident campaign works with employers to remove barriers, increase understanding and ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential.
If you would like to join our team, we have a range of full and part time opportunities, please visit our vacancies page today.
If you are disabled or have a long term health condition and would like support with an interview, application or would like to know more about how the award may affect you, please do not hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
