Disability Confident and Networking Event


We would like to invite you to join us and learn more about recruiting and retaining a wealth of untapped talent your business could be missing out on.

Disabled people in this country make up a dedicated, loyal and skilled workforce who could help your business in a time of increased competition for good employees, and avoid you getting caught out by skills shortages.

Date: Wednesday 26th February 2020
Venue: East Sussex College, Denton Island, Newhaven, East Sussex BN9 9BN 

You will have the unique opportunity to network with other local employers who will explain the steps they have taken and the benefits their businesses have gained as a result of employing experienced and highly qualified disabled people.

We can signpost you to the support that is available through Access to Work to assist with recruitment and retention.  We will explain how DWP can give you the help and support to enable you to meet your recruitment needs from a much wider pool of talent.

If you would like to find out just how disabled people can make a major contribution to the success of your business then join us at our Disability Confident event. Don’t miss out on this valuable pool of potential skills and the financial, operational andsocial benefits that being a Disability Confident employer can bring.
