Job Fair Success
We held a Specialist Job Fair in April for individuals with Hidden Impairments including Autism, Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia.
We were completely over whelmed by the response, with over 400 job seekers attending! BBC Radio Sheffield came along and interviewed attendees and spoke to employers, the piece featured on BBC Radio Sheffield several times the following day.
A very big thank you to all the employers who attended, offering advice and opportunities for people with Hidden Impairments: Sheffield College, Doncaster, Communications College
Freemans, Remploy, Big Ambitions, ATL, Sky Blue/ Carillion, Allied Healthcare, SYPTE, Home office, Dixon Carphone, Groundworks, Learn Direct, Interserve, Social Enterprises.
A selection of quotes we received: "today has given me hope I will get a paid job", "from a worried mum, thank you so much" and from one of the stall holders...."best recruitment event we have been to, thank-you so much!"
