HSBC Start-up Star Awards Finalist

10 Nov 2009

The 9th annual HSBC Start-Up Stars Awards are for start-up businesses all over the UK with the aim of celebrating the initiative and dedication of today’s entrepreneurs.

The Start-Up Stars awards national finalists were announced on Tuesday, 6th October 2009. EmployAbility was named one of the Top Ten finalists. And we were thrilled!

We were then invited to attend a “Dragon’s Den” style examination by 10 leading entrepreneurs and executives. You can hear and see what Managing Director Tab Ahmad and business advisor Dominic Jacquesson said by clicking on the logo to the right, as the whole thing was filmed by Sky News.

EmployAbility is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to assisting disabled people into employment and enabling leading employers to benefit from this untapped pool of talent.

The inspiration behind the company was to provide a specialist consultancy service that enabled disabled people to receive a fair and equitable opportunity to obtain and retain employment which utilises their abilities.

EmployAbility works mainly with disabled university students and graduates to ease the transition from education into employment, and also with employers seeking to become more ‘disability inclusive’. The company maintains strong links with universities across the country as well as working with other disability organisations.

Wish us luck in the awards, and contact us to find out more about how we can help you or your business.

Working with EmployAbility is different from using careers services where the advice can often feel a little 'cut & paste', and who are not always sensitive to the circumstances of disabled students.
