A WORK fair for employers to engage with and recruit disabled people has been praised by MSP Gil Paterson.
On Friday, February 10, the Golden Jubilee National Hospital and the Department for Work and Pensions hosted Disability Confident.
It involved a host of employers meeting with and speaking to disabled members of the public to find out more on how to attract, retain and recruit people living with disabilities.
Mr Paterson, the MSP for Clydebank, was delighted to attend with Martin Docherty-Hughes MP and meet those attending.
He said: “Well done to the Golden Jubilee Foundation and the Department for Work and Pensions for hosting this excellent event – I am sure the employers found it incredibly useful. I certainly did when I was speaking to the exhibitors and visitors.
“People living with disabilities in Clydebank and Milngavie, I know, have so much to offer the world of work. I am glad the many workplaces who exhibited at the Golden Jubilee recognised that.”
