Job search toolkit

A flexible training package to be used with blind and partially sighted jobseekers.

About our job search toolkit

The toolkit aims to enable participants to develop a variety of skills to help them get into work. It can help blind and partially sighted people to identify their personal strengths and weaknesses whilst enhancing skills.

The toolkit can be used by individuals or in interactive workshops facilitated by disability organisations, job centres or local employers. The toolkit specifically addresses the needs of blind and partially sighted people. Issues such as confidence, body language and visual presentation are all covered in an appropriate and sensitive manner. In addition, it includes a valuable set of information resources relating to job search, employment rights and support for people with disabilities. The event facilitation manual contains comprehensive resources to enable an organisation to host an employment event for blind and partially sighted people.

Who can use the toolkit?

The material is suitable for:

  • specialist, disability employment advisors and recruitment agencies to run as a jobseeking programme with individual or small groups of blind and partially sighted clients
  • disability organisations to present as one or more specialist workshops for their blind and partially sighted clients
  • disability organisations to run one or more workshops for local employers and blind and partially sighted jobseekers
  • individual blind or partially sighted jobseekers to use as part of their job search programme.
