Caddick commits to Disability Confident

Caddick commits to Disability Confident

Caddick Construction has signed up to Disability Confident, a Government-backed scheme which works with employers to ensure that disabled people and those with long-term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential.

Through the scheme, Caddick will receive help and guidance that will allow us to recruit and retain from the widest possible pool of talent, attracting and keeping valuable skills and experience within the business. Being part of Disability Confident will also help Caddick’s existing team increase their understanding of disabilities, as well as ensure our workforce is reflective of the communities in which we work in.

Said Ian Threadgold Caddick Construction’s North West Regional Managing Director: “Caddick is a family-owned business and being in the construction industry we wanted to look at ways we could remove barriers that might be preventing disabled people and those with long term health conditions from working for and with us.

“We wanted to make that commitment and improve our understanding of disabilities so we can develop as a progressive and inclusive employer, as well as engage with our clients proactively on these issues.”

As a Disability Confident committed employer, Caddick Construction has committed to:

  • Ensuring our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible
  • Communicating and promoting vacancies
  • Offering an interview to disabled people who meet the minimum criteria for the job
  • Anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required
  • Supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work
  • At least one activity that will make a difference for disabled people
