Showcase of support for employers to help break down the barriers to recruiting staff with health and disability issues
Employers in Fife are invited to get along to a free event later this month to find out about the support available when employing, recruiting and retaining staff who may have, or develop, a health issue or disability.
Local businesses are urged to register for ‘Employ with Confidence’ – to be held at the Vine Conference Centre in Dunfermline on 30 June – which will also see the launch of ‘Disability Confident in Scotland’, a new Scottish Government campaign designed to encourage employers to recruit and retain disabled people who have the skills, talents and abilities they are looking for.
A marketplace of stalls will give employers the opportunity to engage with a wide range of support organisations, including Fit for Work Scotland, Jobcentre Plus, Disability Confident and the Workplace Team from Fife’s newly-formed Health & Social Care Partnership.
The event is being organised by Opportunities Fife in partnership with Shaw Trust Scotland.
