In the last two decades traditional recruitment practices have moved onto the Internet, which has not only changed the way that jobseekers engage with job searches, but has also created additional barriers for disabled jobseekers due to un-equal access to the Internet and a lack of IT skills, compounded by inaccessible on-line recruitment processes. Within the existing literature on recruitment, these voices have been sparse. Using a UK-based sample of 22 jobseekers with visual impairments and/or learning difficulties, and 3‘committed’employers that work for or with dis-abled people, this study shows that disability inequality practices currently embedded within online recruitment processes can be successfully challenged.
