MyPlus Students’ Club
Connecting students with disabilities to employers who value talent
MyPlus Students' Club is a website that brings together work ready disabled students, universities and graduate employers by providing students with disabilities and long-term health conditions the advice, support and confidence to find opportunities, approach relevant organisations and go on to realise new possibilities with progressive employers.
The Students’ Club website provides a platform to showcase yourself as a disability confident employer.
Businesses can benefit from access to the MyPlus Students’ Club by becoming a member of the MyPlus Recruiters’ Club. Businesses can create a company profile, advertise jobs and careers events. Employers can also demonstrate how ‘great with disability’ they are by profiling employees who manage their disability in the workplace on a day-to-day basis. These employer profiles demonstrate that you actually do what you say you do when it comes to recruiting and supporting disabled individuals.
Become an employer of choice for disabled individuals
This isn’t simply a question of ticking a box; it is about reputation, engagement and growing your talent pool. In recent research over 50% of disabled students said that a presence on a diversity website made an employer more attractive. What’s more, we know that over 13% of graduates have a disability or long-term health condition.
A presence on our MyPlus Students' Club website will help you grow your talent pool, build your reputation and reach individuals you might normally miss.
As leading experts in graduate and student recruitment with over 60 established relationships with UK university careers and disability services, who share our resources with their students, the MyPlus Students’ Club can help you:
- Access the talents and strengths of disabled graduates
- Raise your profile amongst disabled students
- Market your company as employers of choice for disabled students
- Increase your applications from disabled students
Demonstrate how great with disability you are
All organisations will say that they are disability confident however actually making this meaningful, and bringing it to life, is key. One of the most effective ways that an employer can demonstrate that they are serious about recognising the talents of disabled individuals, and providing support in the workplace, is by enabling their employees to talk about how they manage their own disability in the work place.
