Reach partners with Evenbreak to tackle the disability employment gap

Reach, the UK’s leading commercial, national and regional news publisher has taken the next step in their commitment to making the industry accessible for disabled people.

They are the latest company to partner with Evenbreak, the UK’s most accessible job board, run for, and by disabled people.

The move will see Reach’s vacancies being advertised on the Evenbreak platform, attracting the very best diverse talent from disabled people across the UK and beyond. This is the latest in a series of initiatives showcasing their commitment to disability and inclusion, including establishing a new role focusing on making this area critical to their future. They have also pledged to lead a culture of transparency and Openness by publishing regular inclusion spotlights and sharing progress updates in their Annual Report.

Julie Humphreys, Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Reach commented:

“With Reach’s national and regional newsbrands now reaching every corner of the country and our mission to champion and campaign for our readers, it is vital that we continue to take steps to attract a workforce that reflects our audience. We’re excited to work with Evenbreak, who are industry leaders in recruiting and retaining disabled talent”.
