Jobs for disabled people
It has been estimated there are some 80 million people with disabilities in the European Union. Our experience is that most of them able to work really want to do so. Yet finding disability positive jobs is not always the easiest task in the world. Far too many job sites either ignore those with disabilities entirely or do not go out of their way to find companies listing jobs suitable for disabled workers. VERCIDA is different.
You might be looking for a new job because of:
Change in marital status
Change in your health
A move to another part of the country
A desire to do something different
We are proud to be one of the few job search websites offering disability positive career options. We can help you find your first job, a better job to enhance your career, or even an apprenticeship or graduate scheme that will help you get your career started on the right foot. It is our belief that you deserve the opportunity to work based upon your talents and abilities, regardless of any disabilities you might be experiencing.
Your Ability to Contribute
Here at VERCIDA, we cannot stress enough how much you have to contribute to your employer. You have the ability to contribute in some way that other workers simply cannot. That is important to the companies that list with us. They are looking to hire people from every sector of mainstream society because they know this is the best way to develop a workforce representative of everyone. Just like us, the companies that list with us are interested in your ability to contribute.
Types of Jobs Available
The types of jobs available for disabled people are as numerous as the rest of the workforce. Obviously, your only consideration is how your disability might prevent you from doing certain kinds of work. However, we do not focus on that. We focus on those things you can do in order to help you find a position perfectly suited to who you are.
VERCIDA has access to graduate schemes, apprenticeships and career positions in a full range of fields including:
Office and clerical
