Since a lot of jobs these day are through agencies, it is rare to apply direct to the company, or at least it is in my field, does any one know of any agencies that specialise in helping people who are disabled or with a chronic illness find work?
I don’t mean low paid type of work you often associate with disabled people being forced into, I mean proper, meaningful work that most people with a reasonable standard of education and experience aspire to.
It comes back to when do you mention MS in the process and I feel traditional job agencies wouldn’t touch you with a barge pole if they know you had a condition such as MS.
I would rather have the MS upfront and out in the open, but I don’t want to handicap (pun intended) myself. Regardless of what this government claims, jobs are hard to come by still, even for healthy people.
Has anyone recently looked for and got a job with MS, especially if your MS is obvious?
Has anyone managed to find suitable part time work?
