Disability in the recruitment process

We are experienced in the sourcing and placement of candidates with disabilities and our affiliation with the National Disability Recruitment Coordinator (NDRC) helps organisations implement processes and strategies to promote the recruitment and retention of people with disability.

The Hays Guide to Disability in the Recruitment Process, offers our clients useful information about improving all aspects of the recruitment cycle. Through our affiliation with the NDRC we can broadcast our roles to the disability employment network either for individual positions or entire recruitment campaigns.

Hays guide to disability in the recruitment process

Disability is a part of human diversity. Some people are born with disability while others acquire their disability with age or accident. There are many different kinds of disability - physical, intellectual or mental-health related. 

A common assumption is that people with disability can only do basic unskilled jobs. The opposite is actually the case – people with disability bring a range of skills, talents and abilities to the workplace.

Our guide is full of useful information about improving all aspects of the recruitment cycle, reminding us that often simple changes to established practices can potentially open our organisations to a wealth of previously untapped talent.
