Changing the Conversation
Purple aims to transform thinking and change the conversation to support businesses and disabled people, creating sustainable solutions for the benefit of society.
Firstly, we aim to help more than 20,000 disabled people to find permanent jobs, providing the largest recruitment agency of its type to help both disabled people and businesses flourish.
Purple is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to reducing levels of inequality between disabled and non-disabled people, particularly in relation to employment.
We believe that by bringing disabled people and businesses together we can change the conversation from one of disadvantage and inequality to one about potential and value, recognising disabled people as consumers, employees and valued citizens unleashing the Purple Pound in the process.Read more…
Our specialist agency is specifically designed to match disabled people who have an identified set of skills seeking work with employers with vacancies requiring the same skills.
Purple’s agency works with both the business and the individual to tackle the traditional obstacles and considerations to appointing disabled people. Our specialist recruiters and advisors will work closely with you, whether a potential employer or employee, to establish exactly what kind of job will work and ensure you get the most out of your experience.Read more…
Disability Confident is a nationally recognised accreditation scheme which encourages businesses to recruit and retain disabled people and people with health conditions for their skills and talent. There are three levels of the accreditation to help businesses ensure they are offering the very best service to current and future employees.
Purple offers support to businesses to help them achieve all three levels of the Disability Confident accreditation through training, information and best practice sharing and completing documentation.Read more…
