Designbureau Ictoria neemt vooroordelen over arbeidsbeperkten weg (UWV Magazine)

UWV Magazine – ‘But you had such a great CV,’ the recruiter blurted out after seeing that Nadia van den Heuvel was in a wheelchair. ‘I was approached by a recruiter at a time when I was looking for another job. I had worked in the public prosecutor’s office for three years, and before that for 12 years in the judiciary. I was ready for something different, so I accepted the recruiter’s invitation.’

Unfortunately, the recruiter’s reaction was not uncommon, as Nadia can testify from her personal experience. At the very same employment agency, she met a man who sat crying in the corridor. He was visually impaired and just couldn’t get a chance at a good job. Nadia offered to take a look at his CV. ‘I instantly saw: this is a good one. He was an IT specialist (full stack developer), and I connected him with one of my contacts on the spot. He got a trial placement there via UWV, and after two months a permanent contract.’
