MyPlus Story

MyPlus was founded and is directed by Helen Cooke.

Recognised nationally as a leading expert in disability and graduate recruitment, Helen is supported by an experienced group of associate consultants and trainers; all of whom have a background in the commercial world as well as expertise in disability.

"I don't believe I am any more special than anyone else. But I do believe my disability has given me something extra."

MyPlus is...

  • my determination to overcome the barriers in front of me.
  • my capacity to prove myself to everyone I work with.
  • my desire today to help individuals and organisations realise new possibilities.
  • what makes me who I am.
  • why all employers should open up to people with a disability.

I’m delighted to see that My Plus Consulting continues to grow from strength to strength, most recently with their re-brand exercise. I’ve known Helen and her work for many years now and she is one of a small number of professionals in this space that really do know their topic and is an excellent convenor both for disabled candidates and for enlightened employers looking to broaden their talent pool. Her work is innovative and often leading edge.
