OLDHAM Community Leisure has secured Disability Symbol Employer status for a further year, and is now tying up with New Bridge School in Oldham to support pupils with learning disabilities through job placement opportunities.
OCL has held the ‘Two Ticks’ accreditation for the past four years, demonstrating its commitment to encouraging job applications from disabled people.
The operator currently has a number of disabled employees working in different facilities and roles including leisure attendant and swim teacher.
Head of human resources Louise McGreal said: “Achieving the Two Ticks ‘positive about disabled people’ symbol demonstrates that we are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all, and we are very proud to be supporting disabled people with local opportunities to earn a living.”
