Job Shadow Day 2017: 24th – 28th April


Job Shadow Day is a national project bringing people with disabilities and local employers  together  for  one  day  to  highlight  the  positive  contribution people  with disabilities can and do make at work.    All kinds of employers, businesses and organisations can take part, big or small, in the private, public or non-profit sector.

Job Shadow Day affords a person with a disability the opportunity to gain an insight into  the  world  of  work  by  shadowing an  employee as  they  go about  their  normal working routine.

 Wexford Chamber is delighted to have the opportunity to work on this very important community initiative and looks forward to engaging with our Members in order that we can give people with  disabilities  the  opportunity  to  spend  a  few hours within business organisations shadowing an employee.  A “win win” situation for everybody concerned and an initiative that the Chamber will certainly engage in.

Rehab Care & National Learning Network in association with the Wexford Chamber of Commerce invite you & your company to offer an opportunity for a person with a disability to Shadow you or your business for One Day during the week of 24th to 28th April, 2017.
