Accessibility improvements (August)

We've added the the 'Userway' accessibility system to the main icanbea... website, which offers a lot of options for users to change the way our pages look.

The system is designed to allow users to adjust pages to suit various requirements or preferences they have in relation to the presentation of page content.

Options include, but are not limited to:

  • Text size, alignment and spacing
  • Dyslexia and ADHD friendly adjustments 
  • Contrast and colour adjustment
  • A screen reader and dictionary
  • Link highlighting 

To access these, just look for the person icon which should be visible at the top of each page: Normally on the right for desktops and laptops and on the left for tablets and mobile screens.

Sustainability in April...

We've been working with West Suffolk College to help students and job seekers explore sustainable careers.

Previously slow to act, governments and businesses around the world are finally beginning to wake up to the challenge. Taking responsibility for acute environmental issues, as well as recognising the need (and benefits) of transitioning to a more sustainable economy has led to a growing demand for sustainable jobs which can also offer long-term job security, better working conditions and more fulfilling careers, making them an attractive option for individuals seeking meaningful work.

We've identified 60+ job ideas on this site that contribute to sustainability - so take a look!

Launched in March - "24/7 Careers Fair" (New Employer Videos)

There's a suite of employer videos available for young people and those who work with them, such as parents, teachers and careers leads!  The YPfE project has already provided over 190 employer profiles and now we've added our 24/7 Careers Fair video content, too!

"Through projects like Youth Pledge for Employers (part funded by ESF) we've been talking to employers finding out what it’s like to work in their worlds.

Though lots of these are local to Norfolk and Suffolk, helping young people in the region find out more about what’s on their doorstep, they are equally valuable for those from further afield, wanting to find out more about careers in different sectors.

You can use these videos to inspire you to find out more information or get advice about what would work best for you as an individual, or the young people that you work with.

You might see some previews of these videos across the site already, and we'll highlight the full suite as soon as they are available."

Local Disability Confident organisations (Feb)

We aim to provide an up to date list of employers and other organisations that we work with who are signed up to Disability Confident.  You can access this list by clicking on the logo below, or by using the Disability Confident tag, within the filter on our employer index


The government also offers guidance for young disabled people to find and stay in work. For more information on that, please see the advice from The Department of Work and pensions.

About the scheme

The Government's Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace.

Disability Confident organisations play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better. They’re changing behaviour and cultures in their own businesses, networks and communities, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.

The scheme

The Disability Confident scheme helps employers recruit and retain great people, and to:

  • challenge attitudes and increase understanding of disability
  • draw from the widest possible pool of talent
  • secure high-quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working
  • improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating fair treatment

It also helps identify those employers who are committed to inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
