Description of activity
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 that they may not find through any other recruitment channels. Disabled jobseekers can be confident that employers who have chosen to place their vacancies on the Evenbreak site are serious about looking beyond their disabilities to identify what skills they have to offer.
Evenbreak is run by disabled people, for disabled people. As a social enterprise they 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.
