About us

EmployAbility was established in 2006 as the not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assisting students and graduates with all disabilities, including dyslexia or long term health conditions, into employment. We have a wide network of relationships with universities, other disability charities and many other key stakeholders, and are always looking to reach out to new candidates.

We run an ever-expanding range of programmes for large international and UK employers, including internships and graduate recruitment, as well as offering training, events and consultancy around disability awareness and inclusion. Our client list includes many leading blue-chip as well as public sector organisations, and we are proud of our success in matching talented students to these disability inclusive employers.

Each year since we started we have helped over one hundred (and growing!) disabled and dyslexic students & graduates to secure either internships or permanent roles – do read our candidate and employer testimonials. We have helped many more candidates through our workshops and university events, offering advice on preparing CV’s and applications as well as interview technique and sensitive issues such as when and how to disclose a disability.

Our team has unparalleled experience from both the commercial and voluntary sectors, and we pride ourselves on our professional approach. We have never required external funding – our income comes entirely from the employers we work with, who value the quality of the service we deliver.

This successful track record was recognised in 2009 when we reached the National Finals of the HSBC Start-Up Star awards – EmployAbility was one of only ten organisations in the UK to achieve this status out of thousands of entrants. We were also winners of the National Graduate Recruitment Awards “Best Graduate Recruitment Partner” in 2010. In addition, EmployAbility was a runners up in the European Diversity Awards in 2011, and then Tab was asked to be a judge for these awards going forward. Tab has also won the Asian Women of Achievement award in recognition of the work that EmployAbility does.

Whether you are a student or graduate with a disability, or an employer looking for highly talented candidates from diverse backgrounds, or a university representative wanting to widen your links on behalf of your disabled students – register with us today, or get in touch by calling +44 (0)7852 764 684.

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you as well. I think its been incredibly tough for me to deal with learning that I have dyslexia and navigating what this means for me in terms of my career and it has at times really affected my confidence but I am really grateful to you and Employability because its nice to know people care about people like myself.
