Working with Employers

There are many benefits to partnering with Accelerate if you are a local employer such as sourcing your future workforce or raising your profile as an employer of choice.

Many participants have updated their skills and are now seeking a supportive workplace to gain experience, increase their confidence and re-start their working life.

The Accelerate project can help with:

  • filling vacancies
  • providing motivated and work ready candidates
  • risk free recruitment
  • providing advice and guidance how to employ a diverse workforce


Stacey, a 25-year old from Coventry who suffered sudden sight loss four years ago, started full-time employment following support from the Accelerate project. She has been employed by global outsource provider Sitel as a Customer Service Advisor at their Coventry Contact Centre. Sean Higgs, HR Manager for Sitel, is delighted to have Stacey and her dog Toffee as part of the Team. “As a leading employer in the Midlands, this is a great career opportunity for Stacey to grasp and make the most of it.”

"Accelerate went above and beyond to secure the right candidate for Glendales Garden Services from shortlisting applications to attending interviews and providing ongoing support. Colin continues to impress us with his work ethic and we would not hesitate to take future employees through the Accelerate route.....it's made our life very easy"
