Vercida talked to Able Magazine about a successful candidate they helped to get a position at Network Rail:
“The Vercida website helped me in my future. I have recently been successful in my application for the Industrial Placement at Network Rail that I applied to on 1st April 2017. Without this website, I would not have been able to find the job opportunity and would not have had the confidence to declare my dyspraxia.”
VERCIDA is – Values, Equality, Respect, Culture, Inclusion, Diversity, Accessibility. They’ve built a careers site that only works with employers committed to these attributes.
They will connect you to organisations placing high importance on a mixed population and staff wellbeing.
Employers use this site to showcase who they are, the jobs they have and the working environment they wish to create in order to attract a rich variety of people.
This site is not about targeting one particular group of people, it’s about creating work places that blend skills sets from a wide variety of people. Employers using this site understand a diverse staff base outperforms their competitors in productivity and profit; this is why employers use us, because they want to be diverse in the people they employ.
More employers are going to greater efforts to be inclusive by offering staff benefits such as flexible working, childcare benefits, belief room, workplace adjustments, staff networks, mentoring, and an array of other interesting options to ensure their staff feel valued and confident being themselves, you’ll find this information right in the heart of the job descriptions and employer profiles.
The organisations here want to you to consider them as an employer of choice, to feel engaged and comfortable regardless of who you are or your social standing.
