Remploy’s mission is to transform the lives of disabled people and those experiencing complex barriers to work by providing them with sustainable employment opportunities. Like Tesco, they believe in greater inclusion and equality for disabled people.
Remploy is a central part of the support provided to disabled people to find work in this country and they have a network of more than 64 town and city centre branches and offices. Our partnership with them means they support us with:
- selecting and training candidates for interview
- supporting our disabled and disadvantaged colleagues once they have started work
- supporting our colleagues who have a health condition or become disabled, as well as individuals who are seeking to return to work after a long term absence.
In addition, we guarantee all applicants who apply for a job with us through Remploy an interview, providing they successfully complete an online application.
