I’d just like to say that EmployAbility are a fantastic company, who really get to know the individuals applying through them and can see talent even when those people, such as myself, don’t necessarily see it at the time.

“EmployAbility helped me gain an internship with Goldman Sachs. I was an intern in the FICC/ Equities Sales and Trading division. It was a fantastic experience with the world's top investment bank and it could not have been possible without the support from EmployAbility”
“This event changed my perspective about my own disability, employers’ perceptions about disability and enabled to understand my disability and taught me how I can overcome some of the barriers I have had in the past (specifically at the application stages for roles) and overall how to move on in my career. “
"... I feel better informed about what I can do and that employers cannot discriminate in the way I thought.”
"...the event had an entire genuine feel to it in that it felt like it was organised to guide and help you in the best possible way.”
“I was very pleased with the support I received while applying for the internship and during the interview process. It was a very new experience for me but EmployAbility ensured I was thoroughly prepared and given whatever adjustments I required.”
“The Employability in Law event was much more informative than I had hoped for. Pursuing a career in law can be disheartening at times, especially if you have a disability. Meeting a variety of individuals with a range of disabilities gave me hope and also an extra sense of determination.”
“I think you have been excellent, you have taken the time and effort to address my specific problems with great care and attention. It has improved my job prospects as I now have a clearer understanding of what area in banking I want to work for.”
“Just wanted to say thanks for putting on such a great event last Thursday. It was great to hear the stories of everyone who was there. You and your team do such a great job at bringing out the best in people and make a significant impact to many of our lives!”
"The work undertaken by the EmployAbility team is essential to the diversification of the workplace when it comes to disability, and the understanding of the wide range of skills that such individuals can bring to the legal profession."
