Employment Process


How to apply

If you would like to apply for a job with CLARITY, for the initial inquiries please contact our Head of Employment Services Gill Austen on Gill@clarity.org.uk.

Check our vacancies page for current vacancies throughout Clarity Enterprises.


Expectations

If offered a position with the CLARITY team, we expect staff to arrive on time for work, enjoy learning new skills and be keen to try their best in the work place.

Our factory staff start work at 8.00am and finish at 4.30pm and our office staff start work at 9.00am and finish at 5.30pm. We work Monday-Friday.


Support

We have a friendly and dedicated workforce and are proud of our diverse and positive community. Full time staff at CLARITY have a wealth of experience in supporting people back to work and we enjoy helping our people develop their skills.

We take our Employees’ welfare very seriously, and it’s because of this that we have a dedicated Welfare room where employees are able to meet with a welfare officer to discuss any issues outside the workplace that they may have.


The CLARITY community

Whilst CLARITY is a stepping stone, we not only equip our staff with transferrable skills for open employment, but we also provide a great community atmosphere in the factory. All of our staff enjoy the same privileges and are treated as full time employees, as with any other company.

The factory is extremely modern and our only modification is that we facilitate manual labour jobs where other factories may invest in machines.
Due to visual impairments of many employees, we ensure that the factory is clutter-free. Training in a modern factory doesn’t mean that employees are limited to graduating to other factories in open employment; staff learn a wide variety of transferrable skills and office-based workshops such as switchboard training, to help to boost their confidence.

There is a social/canteen room where people meet during breaks and lunch. There is a strong and popular social group at CLARITY and a weekly raffle is usually held to raise funds for annual group trips, such as this year’s outings to Brighton and the West End theatre.

Moving On

While unemployment affects everyone, employment for those with complex disabilities currently stands at 1 in 10. The barriers to employment for disadvantaged people, including barriers that are only based on assumptions, can be overwhelming and grow worse with long-term exposure to unemployment.

We offer our disabled staff a stepping stone to mainstream employment, providing workplace and employability training to give individuals the skills and confidence to compete in the open employment market.

We advocate the employment of disabled people in the workplace and a CLARITY employee develops a wide range of skills during their time with us, to prepare them well for the next step in their careers.
