The Right Employer

Hello,

I have a mild form of cerebral palsy that affects the right-side of my body, but having this disability hasn't stopped me from working in retail for almost 12 years. Now I need a job where I can become more independent.

I would say I'm physically and mentally capable of doing lots of different types of jobs, but would prefer to be in an office environment. Only thing is, I lack experience.

Does anyone know of any employers more likely to give someone like me a chance?

If anybody knows of any employer or anyone that could help, I would be truly grateful!

Thanks for taking your time to read this.

Kind regards,

Ben

    Hi Ben, as you have mentioned you have a mild form of Cerebral Palsy and you have been holding down a retail position for many years, your only real barrier would be the fact that you do not have any office based experience.  I would advise you to find some voluntary work if possible, maybe just a day a week, just to get some experience under your belt.  Is this something you would consider?
