Supporting Scotland's vibrant voluntary sector

The Digital Recruitment Review process is unique because it has people with lived experience at its centre. All testing is undertaken by people with a disability or long-term health condition, enabling participants to make a practical contribution to tackling indirect discrimination.

Regardless of their level of digital skills or technical ability everyone’s findings contribute to the recommendations for employers. By supporting employers to make the recommended changes, together we are making the digital recruitment process more accessible for future digital citizens and making a significant difference for disabled job seekers across Scotland.

Recruitment today is often digital, with many employers only accepting online applications.

This has created a scenario where disabled jobseekers face not just attitudinal barriers, but digital barriers as well. Many websites and recruitment boards are not fully accessible to disabled people.

We educate employers on how they can have efficient and cost-effective recruitment processes that do not deter disabled applicants and applicants with long-term health conditions.

Ultimately providing confidence to disabled job seekers that barriers they typically face at the job application stage are not due to their level of digital skills, but rather a failing of recruitment processes.
