The Lambeth Learning Disability Assembly in partnership with Lambeth Working and Camden Society are hosting a recruitment event on Tuesday 29 September 2015 at Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre.

Shaking Hands

The Lambeth Learning Disability Assembly in partnership with Lambeth Working and Camden Society are delighted to invite you to an Employer Breakfast from 8:30am – 10:00am on 29 September, as part of a wider Lambeth Learning Disability Recruitment Big Day.

The aim is to raise awareness and commitment to employment for Lambeth residents with learning disabilities and difficulties (LDD).

With employer and employee case studies, information from the experts and the opportunity for an open and frank Q & A session, we would love you to come along and understand the benefits of employing residents with LDD can bring to your business and how easy it is to make adjustments to accommodate them in your work place.

Coffee and pastries will be prepared and served by Camden Society trainees, who are all students with learning disabilities and difficulties studying towards a catering qualification.

Opportunity for companies and employers

Employers with current, live vacancies are also invited to the Learning Disability Recruitment Big Day recruitment session (10:30am – 2:00pm, flyer attached) for an opportunity to meet with prospective candidates and supported employment providers – please see attached for further information, and email Joanna Busz at jbusz@lambeth.gov.uk to register your attendance.

Benefits for you and your organisation include:

  • Specialist support, advice and free disability awareness training for your staff
  • Development of a diverse and skilled workforce of local people
  • Deliver on social value commitments, community and social responsibility targets

Opportunity for those looking for work

Residents can find out where they can get support with finding work and meet with employers on the day. Please see the Lambeth Learning Disability Recruitment Big Day flyer.
