Specialised support for jobseekers with dyslexia.
- Dyslexia affects 10-15% of people and creates significant disadvantages for individual jobseekers facing standardised recruitment processes:
As well as difficulties with literacy, dyslexic people process information differently
- They are likely to struggle with application forms and CVs, which require them to present information in a linear way
- They have often had poor experiences in school and may lack formal qualifications and confidence
- Their strengths can include being good with figures, visuals, and innovative thinking, so they have a lot to offer employers.
I’m Gillian Austen and I am able to offer flexible, one-to-one, specialised support for jobseekers with dyslexia, helping them prepare covering letters, CVs, and application forms for jobs, training or educational opportunities.
An experienced tutor, professional writer, and editor, I’ve supported numerous people with dyslexia over the last 30 years. I hold Enhanced DBS clearance, am registered with the ICO, and am fully insured for professional indemnity and public liability.
