Disability Confident Employer of the Year

by | Jul 22, 2014 | Joomla Blog, News

Glevum Security Limited has been in Business in Gloucestershire since March 2000 and since this time has put employment of individuals of all abilities at the heart of our employment practice.

The company has been engaging with local employability partners such as PLUSS and others and work closely with these partners to ensure people of all abilities have access to the wider Security Industry via our own dedicated SIA Licence Training Academy we opened in the county and have been running since 2006. The company provides work placements working with partners such as PLUSS, Prospect Training Services, JCP`s in the county as well as NHS Together Trust.

We currently have a placement in our accounts dept (TW) which runs every week on a Wednesday providing him much needed practical experience of working in an accounts office environment, from which to date we provide referencing for him at any job interviews he secures. Another placement in Oct/Nov 2012 saw us provide one to one mentoring for a learner via PLUSS and HFT (NH)who was desperate to get practical experience in an administrative role and Glevum Security were chosen as the employer most likely to make that process a success for her.

Previous employment positions have featured persons with physical disabilities such as Parkinson and Cerebral Palsy as well as one person with a prosthetic leg. All of these people were offered employment because of their ability to do the job offered and the company`s determination to put greater effort into our employability practices to see the ability and not the disability. Previous employees have been rewarded at the BASE 2013 Awards, we have contributed to the Forwards “Every One deserves” film which won an award in 2014.

Forwards recognised Glevum Security as its Employer of the Year 2013 (Private Sector) for the efforts we go to to help educate other local Businesses of employing people of all abilities and ages. Glevum Security`s support reaches into local secondary schools and carries on through to help the young unemployed through work with Princes Trust and other schemes.
