We rarely see a disabled person leading an advertising campaign for a major fashion brand, but that could be about to change.
Depop, the global online fashion marketplace, has taken the next step on the inclusive employment catwalk by becoming the latest company to partner with Evenbreak, the UK’s most accessible job board, run exclusively for disabled people, by disabled people.
The move signals a change in the perception of disabled people as brand ambassadors and sees roles in all areas opened up to thousands of new premium candidates through the Evenbreak site.
For the last three years, Depop has been on a mission to build the world’s most diverse, progressive home of fashion, leading it to take “great strides in unique, affordable and sustainable fashion”.
The recently introduced Mymode hybrid-working embraces flexible working through a wide range of accessible workspaces perfect for individual or team working, in either open and active or quieter and more reflective environments. Depop looks to design a market that is a good fit for everyone, regardless of disability, personality or working style.
Reflecting on the partnership, Tara Clarkson, Global Head of Talent and Employer Brand for Depop, said: “We really value diversity of thought, and we are committed to inclusion, particularly for disabled job seekers, so we are super excited to be continuing this partnership with Evenbreak!”
Jane Hatton, Founder and CEO of Evenbreak, added: “We are so delighted to welcome Depop to the Evenbreak family. They offer a dynamic, engaging, and inclusive workplace culture and various exciting roles in the fashion world.”
