Onrec’s 10th annual online recruitment awards took place at The Grange, St Pauls Hotel in London, On Thursday 20th March, and was attended by over 350 people.
There were 27 categories and “Newcomer of the Year” went to Evenbreak, the only specialist not-for-profit job-board designed and run exclusively for disabled people, by disabled people.
Jane Hatton, Founder and director of Evenbreak, said “I am thrilled to receive this award, because it introduces Evenbreak and the importance of disability employment to the mainstream recruitment industry. There are estimated to be 1.3 million disabled people looking for work in the UK, and increasingly employers are realising that this is a rich and largely-untapped pool of talent they have been ignoring. Research shows there are many bottom-line business benefits to be gained from employing disabled people”.
