At Offploy we are always striving to be the best and most inclusive we can be, both with our candidates and as an employer. When we heard that there is a government backed scheme for employers to demonstrate their commitment to employing people with disabilities, we wanted to be a part of that. One of our volunteers, Simon, took on the task of auditing our operation and looking at how we could ensure that we are disability friendly as an employer. He completed the self-assessment process and made recommendations that will ensure that we meet all the criteria to gain certification as a “Disability Confident Employer”.
“I would like to thank Simon for all of his hard work through this process. I am delighted that we are now certified with the government as a Disability Confident Employer and we are putting the plans in place to progress to the next level as a Disability Confident Leader. Recognising the talent from all walks of life is the very reason Offploy was formed and having a disability should not stop any one from securing employment, especially since so many people can now work from home.”

As Offploy continues our mission to get ex-offenders ready for work and ultimately into work, this is an important signal that we are open to all, no matter what their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. We encourage all employers to adopt this open and inclusive approach and embed the principles of this programme into their recruitment process.
