Scope and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) have been working together since 2009 on many programmes to support disabled people.
GSK currently support Kickstart, a personalised one-to-one employment programme for disabled people. GSK funds Kickstart for people living in Hounslow, Harrow and Ealing.
Kickstart's specialist employment advisers help job seekers develop confidence, assertiveness and independence, find work experience, write CVs, and prepare for interviews. They also provide ongoing career support after someone has found a job. GSK employees also provide employment workshops as part of the programme.
GSK are working with Scope to End the Awkward around disability in the workplace, raising awareness and engagement among GSK employees.
