Strategic Alliance with Business Disability Forum

We are delighted to announce a new strategic alliance between Evenbreak and Business Disability Forum. Both organisations contribute to making the world of work more inclusive and accessible for disabled people, and the alliance enables a sharing of knowledge and experience.

Members and partners of Business Disability Forum, a not-for-profit member organisation, already benefit from a range of services to help them become more inclusive, including a confidential advice service, consultancy, training, networking and much, much more.

In addition, they will now be able to attract talented disabled candidates through Evenbreak even more cost effectively, as BDF members can claim 10% discount on unlimited advertising on the award-winning specialist job board, worth £900 a year. This is fantastic news for BDF members!

If you are a current member or partner of BDF and wish to take advantage of this offer, please contact Jane Hatton at Evenbreak on or 0845 658 5717.

If you wish to explore membership of BDF, contact David Goodchild at Business Disability Forum on or 020 7089 2411.

Remember, Evenbreak helps you attract disabled candidates you probably won’t find anywhere else, whilst powerfully positioning you as an inclusive employer of choice.

BDF helps you to become disability-smart and improve your business performance by increasing confidence, accessibility, productivity and profitability.

What a great combination!
