"Kennedy Scott has provided Cash Converters in Hemel Hempstead with some excellent candidates and they will always be one of our options when looking to recruit new staff"
Darren Bolino, Senior Store Manager, Cash Converters
Kennedy Scott is a Disability Confident Leader and as such is happy to support anyone wishing to join the programme themselves.
Disability Confident is the DWP scheme for employers that replaced the old ‘Two Ticks’ standard and is designed to help businesses recruit and retain disabled people and those with long-term health conditions. There are three levels: ‘Committed’, ‘Employer’ and ‘Leader’.
Being a Disability Confident Leader involves actively looking to attract and recruit disabled people, providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process and demonstrating a flexible approach to the assessment of applicants; once staff are recruited, a Disability Confident Leader supports employees to manage their disabilities, ensures there are no barriers to the development and progression of disabled staff and provides training to all employees as part of creating a culture of being Disability Confident. As a Leader, Kennedy Scott are promoting the scheme and sharing best practice throughout our supply chain, partner organisations and business networks.
As well as ensuring all job applicants have a fair chance of succeeding and that Kennedy Scott is able to select from the widest pool of talent possible, committing to Disability Confident ensures we are contributing to reducing the UK’s disability employment gap by meeting or exceeding the standard’s criteria, working closely with other Disability Confident organisations, whilst informing our participants of the scheme and increasing their job opportunities.
We fully recommend that you acquire Disability Confident status if you have not already. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you require any additional information on our experience.
