  • How do careers services meet the specific needs of their disabled students?

  • What role does the disability service play in relation to careers?

  • Who do students go to for careers advice?

  • How can employers most effectively reach disabled students?

Around 50% of students use the university careers service in their search for a job; this is true of both disabled and non-disabled students. However, research found that over 90% of disabled students also talked to their disability manager about their career options. In addition, disabled students, like all students, join student societies and clubs, and talk to their faculties about employment.

So, when it comes to attracting disabled students, who should employers be engaging with and how can these different stakeholders support them with their engagement with disabled students?

For this Disability Café representatives from across universities will provide insights into their role and responsibilities including the specific part they play in advising disabled students about their career.

Disabled students will also provide insights into who they seek advice from regards employment, particularly in relation to the specific challenges and questions they face around issues such as ‘disclosure’ and requesting adjustments.

By understanding more about the role of these services, and who disabled students seek guidance from, recruiters will build their understanding of how they can most effectively work with universities to engage with disabled students. Delegates will also gain insights into what advice the students are looking for thus enabling you to provide appropriate, and sought after, information.
