5 years ago today I got my F I R S T  JOB!  My number one piece of advice to any disabled job seekers out there: persist, persist, PERSIST! .  This was after going to 43 interviews and trying to get a job for nearly 3 years. I just remember I couldn’t even process that it was actually a yes. .  The issue of employment and disability always fascinates and frustrates me. Research shows those with disabilities are less likely to gain employment as others of working age (Disability Rights, 2019). Unemployment rates are lower for those with disabilities compared to the general population (9.1% versus 3.6%, Scope, 2018). .  The three most common barriers reported by disabled people are: 1) challenges with transport 2) lack of job opportunities and 3) Employer attitudes (DNDP Scotland, 2018). .  Often those with disabilities worry that disclosing their disability might open them up to discrimination. However, the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) makes this unlawful. This act states that employers must consider making “reasonable adjustments” to support those with disabilities at work (GOV.UK, 2018). .  The most common incentives that support those with disabilities to work include: employer incentives, support with their health, phases work hours/days and duties etc. .  Interestingly, studies show that employing those with disabilities is highly cost effective as they maintain loyal employment and take fewer sick days (Independent, 2018). .  So I’ll say it again, persist, persist persist 💪🏼 . .

As a qualified Chef, Ciaran was optimistic about securing employment when he moved to Northern Ireland. Ciaran is deaf and uses Irish Sign Language. He heard about the Action on Hearing Loss Specialist Employment Programme and self-referred to seek support with applying for work.⠀ ⠀ Ciaran's Employment Advisor supported him to update his CV, and provided interview practice when he was shortlisted for a job. Ciaran was successful and is now working in a full time position as Chef in two kitchens in a popular family run hotel.⠀ ⠀ He said: “Getting support from the Specialist Employment Programme gave me the confidence to apply for and secure a job in my local area, whilst learning about other government support available.”⠀ ⠀ The Specialist Employment Programme provides support  to people who are deaf, have tinnitus or hearing loss to access jobs, work placements, voluntary work and training. Read Ciaran's story and find out how to access support here: https://buff.ly/2MNsM71⠀ ⠀ The Programme is part funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014 - 2020 and the Department for Economy. Match funded by Department for Communities.⠀ ⠀ #deafness #tinnitus #hearingloss #isl #irishsignlanguage #accesstowork #disabilityemployment #empowerment #employmentsupport

Happy to join @versusarthritis in calling for better support to keep people with arthritis in work.  Let me know if you’d like a copy of their new report.  There’s a higher prevalence of back pain and osteoarthritis of the hip and knee in the constituency than the UK as a whole - 1 in 5 have osteoarthritis of the knee.  #versusarthritis #arthritis #iamversusarthritis #osteoarthritis #accesstowork

Earlier this week I joined @actiononhearingloss and other supporters; Donna, Beth and Chris and we met Justin Tomlinson MP – the Minister for Disabled People to tell him our experiences being deaf in the workplace, the challenges we face from the application and interview process through to daily tasks in our working life. • We spoke about the changes we’d like to see from the Government to create a hub of useful information for employers to ensure they can best provide for their disabled employees, recognising their talent and helping to minimise the barriers, as well as helping to make the Access to Work process easier and more recognised. I look forward to seeing the changes that they will implement to help make workplaces more inclusive and accessible! • #workingforchange #actiononhearingloss #campaigns #minister #government #change #workplace #inclusion #access #deaf #hearingloss #hardofhearing #deafness #accessibility #accesstowork #employers
#deaf adults - we'd love your help! We want to show deaf young people that with a few simple adjustments, and tech, they can do jobs they assumed they couldn't because of their #deafness. We want them to be able to picture themselves in the job of their dreams and know what support they'll need. If you'd be happy to share what support you use at work we'd love to hear from you. Please comment here or email us at technology@ndcs.org.uk. #deaftalent #deafcan #accesstowork #equality #accessibility #hearingloss
The #accesstowork scheme can provide valuable workplace assistance to those living with arthritis. I heard firsthand about the impact the chronic pain associated with the condition can have on people’s ability to remain employed at an event in Westminster last week. It is important that people are made aware of the help available so they can access the support when they need it. #versusarthritis
Popped by Versus Arthritis launch of their #workingitout report in Parliament to hear more about the little known #accesstowork scheme. Thanks Georgia & Katherine for sharing your stories with me.
Too many people with #arthritis are not aware of the workplace support they could be entitled to through schemes like #accesstowork. Sign our open letter to the Government calling them to urgently address this. Check out the link in our bio to find out more and please share far and wide. Thank you! #workingitout
We want to inspire #deaf young people by showing them how #technology can help make their dream job a reality. Just like James: "In my job I’m on the phone with people and give them advice on how to go about something or how to fix something. I also train new staff that join our company. I love my job! I get the pleasure and satisfaction of helping people. I also feel proud seeing people develop under my coaching and seeing them progress to other areas of the company. Through #accesstowork I had an assessment on my workstation and myself to see what the best solution would be for me to be able to do my job. My workplace paid for my equipment and they are really excited to see this in place as I am the only deaf person in my office. I use the #phonak Roger pen (a #radioaid) for taking and making calls in the call centre and training new staff. I place the Roger pen in its charging dock and connect the charging dock to the telephone. The pen then transmits the customer’s voice directly to my #hearingaids but also removes all background noise which is great. I wear a standard telephone headset just so I can use the microphone to speak to customers. When training staff I place it on the table and it picks up the voices closest to you and sends them to my hearing aids, meaning hearing people close by is extremely easy. The main barrier I faced was background noise-call centres can be extremely loud! The Roger pen has removed this barrier for me. I studied chemistry in university and then completed a PGCE in secondary science, but I am where I am now through hard work and commitment more than my qualifications. My advice to deaf young people - do not be afraid to let your employer know about your hearing, as I was when I first started. There is amazing equipment available and a tonne of support out there for everyone!"

Met with members of our deaf community today to discuss #accesstowork campaign. Equality of opportunity is a must for all our citizens #activation #deasp
It's a first step now that we have had our meeting with the Minister Regina Doherty on the #accesstowork. 🙌 A positive meeting and I hope you have learnt a lot during such a short time but please continue listening to members of the Deaf community. The next step is taking the action instead of all the talk. 👏 Thank you for your time. 🙌

Last month almost 1000 (!) of you asked your MP to attend our parliamentary debate on arthritis and employment. We must keep the pressure up. On July 2 we're releasing new research that shows just how much more needs to be done to support people with arthritis in work. Please go to the link in our bio to invite your MP to attend the launch and ensure these needs are addressed. THANK YOU! 🙌
Loving my new office, and especially my custom made chair and desk. I can now adjust every last angle of myself, my desk, and monitor. . That mouse mat may look small, but it’s amazing how much difference an ergonomic mouse makes to your turning circle 🙌🏼🔥 . Onwards and upwards now I can work with a bit less pain 🥰🤞🏼 . #newoffice #femaleledbusiness #ergonomicdesign #disabilityawareness #enablednotdisabled #macbookair2018 #accesstowork
