How are candidates selected?

Here at EmployAbility Midlands we have a process through which we thoroughly examine our client’s educational standard, work experience (s), employment record to date and their transferable skills.

When an employer is seeking to recruit for a particular role we job match our client’s skills and abilities to the requirements of the role and forward the most suitable candidates’ CVs to the employer.

In conjunction with that we can offer the employer a short period of work experience for the most suitable candidate, this has proven to be an excellent way to establish a client’s suitability for the job and the job’s suitability for the client.  There is no charge to the employer for this ‘job trial’.

Insurance Costs

There is little difficulty in obtaining insurance at normal rates once the employee is trained for the role and understands the tasks involved. The Irish Insurance Federation confirmed that an employer’s liability insurance does not increase when the employer takes on a person with a disability.


How will my existing staff react?

People with disabilities want to be treated the same as other employees. Based on EmployAbility Midlands employer feedback, having a person with a disability in the workplace has a positive effect on staff morale.


Won’t there be extra costs?

Often not. Not all people with disabilities need adaptations or specialised equipment, but should there be a need, various grants are available to enable employers meet those costs.


What about customer perception of my business?

Employing people with disabilities can attract a wider customer base. Promoting workplace inclusion and addressing the large scale unemployment experienced by people with disabilities is an important expression of responsibility (both corporate and community)


What if it’s not working out?

What happens when any recruitment is not working out? EmployAbility Midlands will support you in exploring and implementing suitable solutions up to and including termination of contract, in accordance with the terms and conditions of employment.
