The Careers Centre are hosting a Blind in Business event on 20 April 2016 2:00 - 4:00pm. Blind in Business is a charity that helps sight impaired graduates into work. We have helped people into jobs at the BBC, Rothschild, BT, the Civil Service, Allen and Overy and many more. We offer specialist advice (on disclosure, reasonable adjustments, Access to Work), personalised career planning and grad scheme prep (mock interviews, psychometric test prep, presentation practice). We run speed interview and job-training events and can offer mentoring through our network of VI young professionals and graduate employers.

 

My name is Jessica Luke and I am a sight-impaired graduate from Warwick University who had a difficult time job-hunting, before securing a place on a marketing graduate scheme. I am now working fulltime at Blind in Business.

My colleague Justin has helped hundreds of visually impaired people into work through the Blind in Business Employment Service and last year he supported the first ever sight impaired graduate into a role with British Airways.

We’ll be sharing our tips to help sight impaired students into work.

Sign Up: Please contact the careers centre at careers@soton.ac.uk to book your place.
