Three out of four of persons with disabilities don’t use a wheelchair or anything else that might visually signal their impairment to the outside world. If that’s you then you have a hidden disability. That’s a condition which may not be visible at a glance but can have a major impact on people's lives.
These conditions come with challenges. The most-common hidden conditions are epilepsy, autistic spectrum conditions, dyslexia, diabetes and acquired brain injuries. There’s a whole spectrum of disabilities or challenges that are primarily neurological in nature and some people struggle to find work as a result.
We want to help. We know that people with hidden disabilities have unique talents to bring to an employer. However, in practice people report some company’s management teams struggle to understand what a hidden disability is, whether it’s real or not, even whether it could exist at all. Sadly, to most people, a disability still means being in a wheelchair.
At VERCIDA, we do things differently. Our database of top employers across the country consider what a person can do – not what they can’t. That means, regardless of your ability or disability, you can search for your next job with confidence from the hundreds of vacancies on offer.
“VERCIDA is leading the way for other employers by offering opportunities for disabled people and creating a more inclusive workforce. I encourage other employers to follow VERCIDA’s example and sign up to the Disability Confident scheme, sending a powerful message to potential employees that they will get the support they need to thrive in the workplace.”
