Recruitment Industry Disability (RIDI) Awards: one month left to submit!

Inclusive employers and recruiters have less than a month remaining to share their stories on engaging with disabled talent by entering the Recruitment Industry Disability (RIDI) Awards.

If your organisation is doing great things to recruit people with any form of disability, the RIDI Awards is an opportunity to tell others and share best practice.

Now in their fifth year, the awards celebrate progress and recognise the success of organisations’ attempts to increase the inclusion of disabled professionals and are proud to be known as the recruitment industry’s only disability awards

Last year the awards attracted over 75 applications across varied categories such as Innovation in Assessment, Inclusive Partnerships, Employers’ Choice and Overall Candidate Experience. Previous winners have included, E:ON, the BBC, Sainsbury’s, Amey Consulting, Manpower Group and the John Lewis Partnership as well as many smaller employers and recruiters.

“I’d like to urge all employers and recruiters that are engaging with disabled talent to step forward and share their experiences. Be it the beginning or further along your journey to becoming disability confident, every step in the right direction has a significant impact on the prospects of disabled jobseekers and is worth showing off.”


Kate Headley, Chair of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative and subject matter expert.

Kate adds: “If you are proud of the changes that your organisation is making, don’t sit on the fence – shout about it. There’s just under a month left to share your stories and enter the RIDI awards. We look forward to receiving your entries.”


Submissions close on the 1st February 2019 and the awards are free to enter and attend.
