Kirklees Council

Becoming a host business for DFN Project SEARCH has had a huge impact on Kirklees Council as an employer.

Working with interns has made hiring managers more aware of the diverse skills and capabilities of people with a learning disability, and/or autism and has got them thinking about how the recruitment process can be tweaked to allow applicants to showcase their skills, job carving, in line with business needs, to be more inclusive, inviting job coaches to support in interviews, giving candidates access to interview questions in advance and guaranteeing interviews for certain jobs.

The impact of these changes is evidenced by the fact that six of our seven graduates now work within Kirklees Council.
