Description

Evenbreak, a not-for-profit social enterprise, was formed to achieve three aims:

  • To help inclusive employers attract more talented disabled people;
  • To help disabled jobseekers find work with employers who will value their skills;
  • To promote the business benefits of employing disabled people.

With Evenbreak, inclusive employers can be confident that they will attract additional disabled candidates than they will attract from other media. Disabled jobseekers can be confident that employers who have chosen to place their vacancies on this site are serious about looking beyond their disabilities to identify what skills they have to offer.

 

Evenbreak was founded and is run by a disabled businesswoman. Jane was a finalist in the Stelios Disabled Entrepreneurs Award 2008, and has personal experience of employing many disabled people, learning so much about the value they bring to a business. Also, as a disabled person herself (a degenerative spinal condition that restricts her ability to sit or walk, meaning she runs Evenbreak lying down with a laptop suspended above her) she knows how important staying in work is - not just for the income, but also for the self-esteem, dignity, feeling of being useful and having a purpose it brings.

Evenbreak is run by disabled people, for disabled people. As a social enterprise we are keen to promote a positive image of disabled people in employment, and any surplus income will fund positive publicity campaigns promoting the benefits of employing disabled people, to balance out some of the current negative, and inaccurate, portrayals of disabled people in the media.

We are confident that this website is as accessible as it is possible to be, and it has been extensively tested by people with a range of disabilities. If you find it doesn't meet your needs, please let us know.
