*** Disability Confident Committed Accreditation ***
We have joined over 15,000 organisations that have signed up to the Disability Confident Committed Accreditation. Disability Confident organisations play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better and we are proud to be part of that. It is about changing behaviour and cultures in businesses, networks and communities, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices. It was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives to make it rigorous; this is a unique opportunity for Watermead and we aim to lead the way in our community, business sector and beyond, helping to positively change attitudes, behaviours and cultures.
The scheme will help us recruit and retain great people, and: • draw from the widest possible pool of talent • secure high quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working • improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating that we treat all employees fairly We are committed to equality in the workplace.
The activities we participate in include: • work experience • work trials • paid employment • apprenticeships • job shadowing • traineeships • internships • student placements • sector-based work academy placements
