After months of anticipation, we are delighted to announce that CarmichaelUK has won the Individual Choice Award at last night’s RIDI Awards 2018.

Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) is an organisation that is devoted to breaking down entry and progression barriers faced by millions of disabled people. When judging our application the panel said: “This is an amazing example of breaking down barriers to help a talented person back into work after experiencing health problems. CarmichaelUKis not a disability specialist agency yet they didn’t give up and continued to think outside the box to support Jamie Winter, the candidate. A special mention must go to CarmichaelUK’s Penelope Ware, who worked tirelessly to support Jamie and did a brilliant job of helping him back into work, whilst also giving him ongoing support in his new role.”

CarmichaelUK’s Managing Director, Rod Carmichael, said “We are very proud and humbled to be recognised for our workplace practices. Our primary mission is to provide a service that encompasses inclusivity and equality and we look forward to developing our learning in this area so that we and our clients can continue to benefit from the value that disabled people bring to the workplace. A big thank you to everybody involved and our congratulations to all of the other finalists and winners.”

For Carmichaeluk diversity and inclusion is embedded at the heart of everything we do, we have been working tirelessly over the last few years through our Celebrate programme to embrace diversity and promote equality of opportunity. Through this programme, we work closely with other organisations and charities to ensure our practices are always improving such as ‘Mind’ out mental health partner and ‘Disability Confident’.
