Becoming a Disability Confident Recruiter
Leading Australian organisations understand the benefits of a diverse work force and are committed to ensuring their recruitment and selection processes are accessible to people with disability.
To do this effectively, it is important to ensure that internal recruitment processes are inclusive and barrier free. In addition, it is essential that recruitment agencies engaged to support the talent search also have accessible and inclusive practices.
Being a Disability Confident Recruiter means that you:
- Recruit from the entire talent pool by enabling skilled jobseekers with disability to compete for positions on a level playing field.
- Make appropriate adjustments to the recruitment process for candidates who have disability.
- Provide an excellent candidate experience to all applicants.
This session will highlight some of the key elements for you and your organisation to become Disability Confident Recruiters.
