Yes We Can: ‘Get In Cornwall’ in Working Partnership with Pluss
September 6, 2016 | By Sophie Stokes |
This month, Get In Cornwall are proud to announce their Partnership with award winning Social Enterprise ‘Pluss’ to offer a Traineeship Scheme for some of its clients at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust in Truro.
Pluss supports thousands of people with disabilities and other disadvantages to move into employment each year. Their employment operations help jobseekers who need specialist support to find work and achieve a career.
Pluss are clear about their message on supporting longer term recruitment techniques such as Traineeships, and why the NHS should be leading the disability employment movement:
“From Pluss’ experience, disabled employees bring to work those can do attributes that they’ve needed to develop in their everyday lives. Having a workforce that is representative of the people being supported by NHS Trusts can only help inspire recovering patients, and help Trusts better understand and respond to their patient base.
The NHS is the most iconic health brand in the world. As an institution, it is uniquely placed to see the whole remarkable person, to recognise not what people can’t do, but what they can. Showing innovation in how it recruits its workforce can put an NHS Trust where it should be – at the forefront of the Disability Confident movement.”
