3SC deliver the DWP Access to Work programme providing holistic, work-based health assessments to people living with physical or mental health conditions or disabilities. The programme provides adaptations and equipment to assist people in work enabling them to perform at their best.

 

3SC are recruiting for more Access to Work assessors. Assessments are conducted virtually and paperwork filled in online through a secure, user friendly IT portal. The role itself is flexible and can fit around other workloads.

 

We’re looking for people who have experience and a passion for accessibility and whilst there is no strict qualification criteria, we expect to see demonstrable CPD in relevant fields.

 

So, whether you are a generalist or whether your skills are focussed on specific disabilities, we have a space for you.

Laura Kingdon is one of our newest assessors and has shared a little of her experience working with us during the last 12 months:

 

“As restrictions became the norm, we saw necessity in developing new skills and offering new services. I’ve had the opportunity to train as a coach and NLP Practitioner, which now means I’m helping people to stop feeling anxious and focus on achieving their goals…

 

Like many, the last year has given us a chance to re-focus and grow. We’re grateful for the partnership we have with 3SC. When you’re a small business it helps to know that you’re part of something bigger…New products and services make our foundation stronger and increase our reach so that we may help more disabled people.

 

Between us, Rita and I have over 20 years of working with disabled people. We both have long-term health conditions and know, from personal experience, that not only do reasonable workplace adjustments help a disabled person do their job more effectively they also help reduce sickness absence, reduce employee turnover and increase the recruitment pool. There are 4 million disabled people working in the UK, however, disabled people are twice as likely to be unemployed in comparison to non-disabled people. Access to Work and schemes supporting disabled people into work are hugely important in creating an inclusive and equal society”.
