Mitie receives Disability Confident accreditation

Mitie’s property management business has been awarded the Disability Confident employer accreditation.

Think Differently candidate, Connor Cusaik, has since commenced a painting apprenticeship with Mitie following his hard work and success on the programme

Developed by employers and representatives of disabled people, the Disability Confident scheme encompasses a number of voluntary commitments by the employer, such as offering work experience opportunities and implementing a flexible recruitment process for those with disabilities and health conditions.

The Disability Confident accreditation is split into three tiers of commitment:

  • Level 1: Disability Confident committed employer
  • Level 2: Disability Confident employer
  • Level 3: Disability Confident leader

Mitie’s property management business received the Level 2 accreditation for demonstrating its commitment to 13 statements and two actions grouped into two themes: ‘Getting the right people for your business’ and ‘Keeping and developing your people’.

The accreditation comes following the success of the ’Think Differently’ project, launched by Mitie and the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) in 2016. The initiative sees Mitie work alongside CITB, Remploy, the National Autistic Society and Geason Training to provide invaluable work experience opportunities, training and mentoring for job-ready disabled candidates.
