Leonard Cheshire-backed recruitment site for disabled people wins award

Jobability.com, a Web service enabling disabled people to break employment barriers by finding jobs online, has received European recognition by winning an award for the second year in a row and becoming a finalist in The Stockholm Challenge.

The project, an initiative by leading disability charity Leonard Cheshire, totaljobs.com, and Microsoft in the UK, won an e-award in Brussels for the best use of technology to bring about inclusion as well as being a finalist in the education category in Stockholm.

Disabled people who log on to jobability.com can apply for jobs that are advertised by employers committed to employing disabled people. They can be sure of an interview provided they meet the job specification.

Andrew Anderson of Leonard Cheshire, said: “Jobability.com has been hugely successful and so we and our partners, totaljobs.com and Microsoft UK, are extremely pleased to once again get European recognition for its achievements. Disabled people have a wide range of skills and yet many find

that it is hard to be noticed when it comes to finding a job.”
