Description

Golden Futures - the mutual benefits of employing people with disabilities, is an event with one purpose and two audiences. It's purpose is to raise awareness and understanding of the mutual benefits to employers and employees gained from employing someone with a disability. Its target audiences are employers and the people with disabilities who want to work in their business.

Chris Sargisson, Chief Executive, Norfolk Chamber of Commerce said

“Norfolk businesses are always looking for the best talent to help them grow, and sometimes that comes from places where that are not always obvious. Norfolk Chamber is pleased to support the disability & employment event and would encourage its members to think positively about employing people with disabilities in roles that are right for the employee and right for the business.”

Supported by partners in Norfolk Chamber of Commerce, Norfolk County Council, Easton & Otley College, Rthirteen Recruitment and the Department for Work and Pensions The event has two parts:

8.30am - 11.30am is a seminar aimed at employers, with presentations from current employers, and employees with disabilities and representatives from The BUILD Charity, Norfolk County Council, DWP, SERCO, Nelsonspirit and others sharing their own experiences as employers, employees or training and support providers to illustrate what support and benefits can be gained by positively thinking about the employability of someone with disabilities.

9.30am - 2.30pm is a Market Place aimed at people with disabilities, and those who support them where employers, training providers, welfare agencies and a recruiitment agency will be on hand to provide advice and information to people with disabilities about the kind of jobs they offer, the welfare implications and benefits, the training and support on offer along the journey to and into work, and beyond.
